    Interview: What to say if they bring up salary?

    Hello, I am going to a interview, grad role, for previous part time jobs the salary was always advertised.


    Its my first time since I will be in a position, where they may ask about salary.

    How do you answer this question? How would you phrase it?


    Thanks

    Have you seen a starting salary for other similar jobs? If not, do a bit of research to see it you can find out what a normal salary for the position is.

    Or, you can answer with 'I'm willing to negotiate'.

    Then you'll need to use your negotiating skills, if you have any.

    I......
    If they ask a general question like 'what are your salary expectations' just put it back to them - 'you said 'competitive' in the job advert and that sounds fine'.

    If they press you and ask for a figure ask them if they are making you an offer. They'll say no, so then you can say, 'well I think we should negotiate specific figures when an offer has been made, until then 'competitive' is fine'.

    No serious employer discusses salary numbers at interview.

    Or you can simply put forward industry average salary figure and/or salary negotiable tag you can get ease of acceptability from the employer.
