Salary Requirements

The information in this article applies to:

  • WinWay Resume - all versions

Summary

Many job ads ask the candidates to indicate their salary requirements. This is a difficult question to answer because you do not want to be excluded on the spot for asking for too high a salary. On the other hand, if you give too low of a figure, you may get a lower offer or be excluded for being too "cheap".

More Information

It may be best not to include a salary requirement, even if you are asked to do so. If you HAVE to provide salary requirement, put them in the cover-letter and not in the resume.

Describe he salary in general terms such as "I expect a competitive salary and benefit package". If you feel that you have to be more specific, use a range such as "Salary in the low 50s or high 40s, with competitive benefits"
