Daily Job Seeker Tip: Salary ExpectationsDecember 28th, 2010 | Job Search, Salary | 1 Comment »
It’s tempting to hike up that salary number in an interview with the goal of creating negotiation wiggle room. However, in 99% of all cases, this is a big mistake. Instead of landing your dream job with a big check, all you’ll succeeding in doing is coming across as money motivated.
Employers are wary about money motivated candidates because these candidates are rarely interested in the company or the position, and they will hop to a higher paying job in a moment’s notice. Your best bet is to be realistic and honest about your salary expectations or simply leave the negotiating to an experienced recruiter.
