In the video: Everything you need to know about salary expectations before the job interview (Editor: Ziv Steiner)
Is there such a thing as "secret jobs", how can social networks help in finding a job (if at all) and what should be known before going to a job interview (and what should be forgotten)?
The Manpower company recently launched a new network series - "Truth or Myth?", which will help you, the job seekers in the economy, to get to know this fascinating world a little better, on the way, perhaps, to the job of your dreams.
And this time: salary expectations.
When you are asked in a job interview what your salary expectations are, should you exaggerate and ask for double salary to negotiate?
We asked Dolev this, as part of "Truth or Myth?".
"That's right," he replied.
"When I come to a job interview, I ask for a CEO's salary.
What do I have to lose?
True and final."
Dolev was wrong.
A job interview is not a tender.
The interviewers know exactly what the relevant salary ranges are for the position, therefore, asking for a high salary that is not appropriate for the position, may present you as unreliable and not serious.
We recommend that you use Manpower's team of experts, who will be able to show you the salary that suits your position and experience."
