This is always a tricky question during the interview process.
Especially if your salary expectation is high and you are not getting hired as a result …
Stop waiting for the hiring manager to ask you what your expectation is!!
Get ahead of the curve and ask first!
•What is the budgeted salary range for this position?
This puts the ball in your court!
You can now tell them if this range works for you without having to expose your potentially “out of price range” salary expectation!
It’s a simple but highly effective pivot to change the narrative and be in charge of the interview process as an applicant.
