What kind of salary are you seeking for?

Tread carefully with this question as you can really shoot yourself in the foot here if you give a wrong answer.

If you state a salary too low for the role you're applying for and the experience, qualifications you have, you be either selling yourself too short or not having the confidence in your own capabilities for the job. Worse yet the employer may take advantage at the situation and start you on that wage.

If you state a salary too high, then you be over estimating your capabilities and self-importance and, in most companies, (maybe not in a sales environment) employers are looking for individuals who are not arrogant but capable.

First Answer
I would expect a salary, which reflects the experience and qualifications that I bring to the role. What range do you have in mind?
If the employer asks, what range is that? {Specific amount} The answer is: whatever the market rate is for somebody applying for this position.

Second Answer
I've got a strong background in this industry and my skills are a perfect match for this role. I would expect my compensation to be at the upper end of the position's salary band.
Can you tell me what that salary band is? (Use your judgment when it comes to asking this question as you should already have done your research.)

Third Answer
Based on the information I have about the position, a salary in the range £28,000-£32,000 would reflect the experience and expertise that I would bring to the role.❮ Previous Next ❯
