5 Tips For Handling Salary At Interview

Published

on

Handling of salary is one of the critical parts of job interview. Which if not handled very well, may not yield nice outcome.

We want to work to get money and take care of other things but, if the money is not coming, what is the benefit of working?

When choosing where to work, the salary should be at the back of ones mind. To manage your expectations and successfully maneuver through the salary minefield, career experts according to forbes, offer these five tips:

1. Do your homework. Research what the job you’re applying for pays to make sure your expectations are on target. Websites such as Glassdoor.com, Salary.com and Payscale.com offer salary information for positions in various industries, even specific companies.

2. Think about a salary you’re comfortable accepting. Decide what is the minimum you can accept to meet your living expenses and that you would be satisfied receiving. Then shoot for the sky, within reason.

3. Deflect salary questions early in the interviewing process

In that case, get creative. Try typing in “negotiable” in the salary field or note your acceptable range. “I’ve even heard of people putting down ‘zero’ ” to get the application through, Hannon says.

5. Look beyond salary. Ask yourself: “Is this position worth taking a pay cut in order to work for the organization?” For many people, a job is more than just money.

If you can’t get the salary you want, negotiate for total compensation. That can include benefits such as telecommuting, flexible hours, more vacation days and education reimbursement.

You may also request revisiting your salary in three to six months — time enough to prove yourself on the job.

JUNE URGES: Revisit Your Resolution (2)

Published

on

Continuation of Revisit your resolution, part one.

The S.E.L.F reasons that infringes our resolutions.

S= Self-doubt
E= Enormosity (big)
L= Little/no drive
F= Fault finders.

Many a person gets hooked by one or many of these factors above, on the pursuit of their vision. This could keep such an individual spinning the wheels of opportunities repeatedly, but without tangible results.

Self doubt as learnt from Karyl MC Bride , a seasoned psychologist, is different from an “impostor syndrome” or ” low self esteem”

SELF DOUBT IS lack of confidence in oneself and one’s abilities.

Believers (Followers of Christ) have an edge at this juncture, and you may want to ask why,

Well, Check this out please:

1 COR 2:16 says:
…Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ

But we HAVE the MIND of CHRIST

This type of mind is devoid of fear, curruption of the world, pride, e.t.c.

It doesn’t come naturally by birth: but supernaturally by a re-birth.

At every point when the Pharisees come testing JESUS to see whether he will fall by his words, they become disappointed, because he knew the intent of their hearts.

So, you want to enjoy this kind of creative mind? Then you need to be friends with that successful man of Gallilee, JESUS.

“A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her.”

Doubters operate in the realms of luck,
But divine ability (of the mind) operates in the realm of the spirit.

Consequently; Self-doubt breeds excuses.

Surprisingly, failures tend to come with more reasons than successes, these reasons are referred to as “Excuses”

You remember David in the Holy scriptures right? Did you know he could have attributed his failure in the battle against that huge man of Gath (Goliath) to many reasons? In fact, he could have said he was too small, or he was just a shepherd, or he only killed a bear, and not a man in the first place, but he didn’t.

#BOTTOM LINE:

Every great success focuses on an inner ability.

Little wonder, that Great Nurse and Philanthropist, Florence Nightingale said; “I never gave or took an excuse”

Sometime ago, a friend said, you want to be a high achiever? LIVE BEYOND EXCUSES. Its is an element of self doubt!

Self doubt is an anti-resolution spirit.

¤Next up is ENORMORSITY (big, huge, complex…)

While resolutions may be big,
Steps (goals) toward achieving those resolutions should be simple,realistic and uncomplicated.

In fact, When you set a goal, you are working towards something. You can work backwards from where you want to get to and create an action plan of little steps you need to take to get there. This is a much more realistic way of creating the change you want because you’re slowly building yourself up to reach it, SAYS Susanna Halonen.

Its almost getting too bulky,
you dont like that right?, I don’t either, (😁 lafs)

But, believing we are being challenged by some truths entailed herein,
