Hallie was honored to be featured in a recent efinancialcareers article about changing your approach for the final job interview. As a follow up to this article, we wanted to share some additional tips with you.
- Schedule informational interviews. In advance, you can schedule a few informational interviews with others in the industry and similar jobs to determine what is the norm and what you can ask for.
- Determine your salary range. If you are entering a new industry, you probably won’t be able to ask as much as a seasoned employee. Sites such as glassdoor.com are helpful for determining the salary range for a job position.
- Find out your job benefits. Aside from your salary, find out what benefits the job offers. This could be vacation time, health insurance, day care, education, etc. You may find that it’s worth it to accept a lower salary amount if you also will get a lot of good benefits.
- Ask about growth opportunities. If you haven’t already, be sure to ask in the last interview what job growth opportunities are available. For example, if you start out at X amount, what could your salary be five years from now? Is there room at the company to keep advancing?
