Don't answer the salary question

Don't answer the salary question

Instead of answering, get them to talk first by asking what the range is for the job.

If the range for the job is $70,000 to $80,000 and you answer lower, they will give you the lower amount. But if you expect more than their range, you can negotiate after you've received an offer.

Two questions often seem to pop up.

  • Come prepared with questions and ensure you ask them. Failure to do so could cost you the job.
  • From when you arrive at your interview to when you leave is potentially part of the interview. Make every moment count.
  • Don't panic if you ...

  • "You have two teleportation devices—where do you place them and why?" is an entertaining question that helps to understand how a candidate thinks logically and imaginatively.
  • "If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring?"

Both the interviewer and the candidate should feel fully in the moment to bring out the best dialogue.

Create an effective presentation of who you are and what you offer. Focus on your actual skills that go beyond your resumé.

Nothing is more impressive than arriving at an interview and being prepared and well informed about the company - its values, goals, history, current events, and who you might be meeting with.

When a candidate is invited to an interview, the hiring manager automatically assumes they meet the basic skillset.
