Negotiate for a better salary

The most daunting task for a first-time job seeker is to get a good starting salary. They are some things you can do to get a better deal from your potential employer.

  • Do homework to find out the salary ranch of the post that you are applying for. Ask people who work in the same industry or from the company that you are applying for. Look for joy-hunting websites. Refer to career magazines.
  • Elaborate your accomplishments during the interview by using action words such as I supervised, I created and I led. Most important of all, your ability to speak well in more than one language will put you in good stead.
  • Be prepared to response to objections from your potential employer to pay you the salary that you know is the market rate.
