What salary should I be asking for
When it comes to researching the salary levels you should be looking for have a look at the roles you relate to and industry norms. Look at the salaries on offer in relation to the level of experience they are asking for as well as the transferable skills you have to offer.
If you tick all their requirements chances are you will be close to the top of the salary banding but if you only tick a few then the lower figure will be most likely.
Be realistic here and honest with yourself. If you don't tick all the boxes but ask for the higher figure you will be caught out at interview.
During an interview, be ready to answer the question what salary are you looking for and give your potential employer a salary band that takes into account the least money you could accept for the most perfect job and the highest industry norm. This will make sure you don’t lose out on a job you would have accepted at a lower salary but give yourself the opportunity to earn more.
If you are going through a recruitment agency they should discuss this with the employer on your behalf but ideally try to find out the salary banding for the role before you attend the interview.
