Collecting Salary Information for Your Job Interviews

Some reliable websites for getting salary range information for your job interviews are glassdoor.com and salary.com.

Glassdoor allows you to get salary range information based on geographical area and job title.  You can enter a job title or company name and select a city to get a report of salary ranges for those jobs on the homepage of their website.

Salary.com works similarly to Glassdoor.  Users of their website can enter job title or keyword and location to determine salary ranges.

It is important for job seekers to determine a salary range before an interview, so that you know how much you are worth if and when a job offer is made to you.  When the offer is made to you and you believe the employer’s salary figure is low, you can counteroffer and say, ‘Based on my research, I found the salary range for this job is in the $35,000-$45,000 range.’  You do not have to tell the employer where you did your research.  You want to know the actual range for the job title based on the research you have done, and then go about $5000 above the low end of the range to start salary negotiations.  For example, if the actual salary range for a job is $35,000-$45,000, you can start the salary negotiation at $40,000-$45,000.

There are possible scenarios that can happen when you negotiate a salary.  First, if you name a salary figure that’s below the employer’s range, they will happily give you that salary because it saves them money.  Second, if you give a range that is too high, the employer may counteroffer by saying, ‘That salary range is too high.  We were thinking about $30,000-$35,000.’  At that point, you need to consider if you are willing to take a lower salary, and if you are, you can try to negotiate for more benefits.  However, don’t sell yourself short.  If you have at least one year of relevant work experience for the job for which you’re interviewing, you can negotiate for a higher salary.  You can walk away from a job offer if you have other job offers from companies who are willing to pay you more money.
