Your salary would obviously depend on your skills and if you think that you have the skills to get the maximum salary, then you would need to negotiate with the HR department. Here are some useful tips for salary negotiation:
Before going to the company for an interview, it would be helpful if you can do some market research and have an idea as what other companies are offering for a similar position or similar role. If the job title confuses you, you can make a comparison based on the job description, education and experience.
When you have done your homework, then you would be able to be assertive about the salary that you expect. Gross salary varies as per geographic location. So make sure to include this parameter as well.
Do not rush to ‘what would be my salary’?
This is something really important. Never ever start your conversation with the HR asking what your salary or going to be or making a demand. This is real bad manners. In fact, wait for the HR to ask you about your expectations.
This is a common mistake that fresher makes and this creates a bad impression.
Show your worth
Impressing the HR who is conducting the interview can go a long way as per as your package is concerned. It is during this time that you would get a chance to show that you are most capable for this job and take full advantage of the same. The HR must get the feel that you are best suited for this job.
Developing such a personality skill is important for a successful salary negotiation.
You might not always win the battle and get the salary you expected, but that does not mean that it is the end of the road.
If you get the job, it means that the company likes you and they are ready to work it out, provided you want the same. If expected something higher, speak to the HR and market yourself as much as possible. Any reasonable employer would like to things work in favor of you as they would not want to lose a candidate like you.
If things still do not work in your favor, think what you actually want. You like the company and you like the job. The only thing that you do not like is the salary. If you think that with your work experience, you will get a better paying job, you always can start looking for one.
