What kind of salary are you looking for? – Interview answers

What kind of salary are you looking for?

1. Answer structure

Provide salary scale which is acceptable for you. Or answer that: I’d like to have the salary which matches my ability. Yet I’d also like to know the salary scale for this position.

Then explain that you will give the more specific number if you know work details.

2. Answer tips

• In any case, you should not answer this question right away because the salary you recommend can be too high or too low.
• Before answering, ask for description for the job; the goals, the difficulties and how to assess the working performance.
• You can also give the answer via email after the interview.
• Do not answer this question too generally or too safe, the interviewers like numbers. You can answer in a certain range, but you need the job requirements before giving the exact number.

3. Answer samples

Sample 1:

I don’t care very much about salary. What means more to me is the policy and working environment the company is offering and supplying me with.

Sample 2:

I look up to salary not to make ends meet, but to enjoy my life. I’m afraid I am not the one who only concerns about paying bills but not others. Therefore, when I look for a job, I expect a high consideration which suits my ability and goals.
