Hi MT Community!
How does one respond to "What are your salary requirements" during an interview?
Through my research (glassdoor), I have learned that a company I am interviewing with often asks for your salary requirements. I believe this to be different than expectations. The salary expectations question is easy...there's a cast for that!
Long story short, this is a company I would LOVE to work for and would be willing to take less than my expectations (~80k) as I see a lot of up-sides to working here. I could make approximately $65K and meet my budgeting goals (or even 60 if need be). The range on glassdoor is 62-110 with the average being 81. 80 is also in line with other firms who do similar work in the industry.
I am considering responding to this question in several ways:
"My requirement is 65K."
"My requirement is at least 65K with my expectation around 80K"
"My expectation is 80K based on my research" (Dont like this one)
What would you recommend? Thanks for the help!
