在面试过程中聊到薪水这个话题难免会让人战战兢兢。找工作的时候,大家都会为这个难题伤脑筋:到底什么时候才是聊工资的理想时机呢?应该提什么数目才不算亏待自己,又不会让面试官觉得自己狮子开大口呢?

应付这种令人鸭梨山大的敏感问题,提前做好准备是必须的。我们为大家准备了一些小窍门,让你在能信心满满地提出自己期待的薪酬!

 

1. 面试前,先想好自己能接受的薪酬范围

刚开始找工作的时候记得去了解下类似职位的工资待遇,我向国外的童鞋们推荐Glassdoor.com网站,在这里输入职位或某公司名字,就可以了解到相似职位的大致薪酬。我每次面试前都会去Glassdoor了解目标行业的平均工资水平。

在国内工作的朋友可以去 Kanzhun.com 了解不同地区同行业的平均工资。

还有个方法就是通过从其他类似职位的招聘广告了解工资水平,一般招聘广告会把大概薪酬待遇列出。在国内工作的朋友们可以去大街网(Dajie.com) 猎聘网(Liepin.com) 上获取相关信息。

当你心里有数以后,可以把这个理想数目写下来牢牢记住,这样被问的时候就能应答如流。即使面试时十分紧张也不会手足无措。

2. 目标薪酬比你现在的收入水平更重要

面试时一提到待遇问题,面试官总会先问我在之前的岗位收入多少。这时候,其实你可以拒绝透露,只提自己的理想薪酬。因为面试的这份工作可能按不同城市、不同职位、不同行业对收入作出调整。记住,只要有充分理由,可以只提你的目标薪酬。

其实最糟糕的情况就是单位拒绝你的要求,要是这样的话,还有必要浪费时间在不愿意付你应得报酬的地方吗?

回想上次面试经历,当时我的理想年收入是65000美元。面试的时候,人事部问我“你目前职位工资是多少?”我的回答是:“我希望可以找到一份薪酬在65000-75000美元之间的工作。”由于我提前做了准备,在面对提问时我能自信地说出自己的目标,不容易被忽悠,轻易的把自己现收入说出来。

 

3.自信很关键

记住不可以抱着“反正我不一定被选中”的负面心态去参加面试,你得自信满满,摆出势在必得的姿态。要做到准备充分,对自己的价值有充分认知。

你的独特之处可以成为在面试时讨价还价的价码。我每次面试前都会做个清单,详细列出自己最出色的技能和优势,然后分析该岗位的要求,找出自己在这方面的亮点。面试前我会熟读这个清单,这样在谈到以往经历和期待薪酬等话题时,就能顺利回答。

要记住:机会总是留给有准备的人!赶快分享这条锦鲤吧~祝大家面试成功!

Money is always a scary topic — especially when you’re interviewing for a new job. Job applicants often have doubts over the perfect timing to bring up their ideal salary, or even HOW to figure out that magic number, to begin with. “What if I asked for too much, or too little?” is a question we've all asked ourselves at one point or another.

For a tricky discussion like this, you need to be as prepared as you possibly can be. These tips will give you the knowledge and confidence you need to ask for what you deserve. Now go get them dollar bills!

1. Have an ideal salary range ready BEFORE your interview

When you start your job search, take some time to look up what companies are paying people in similar positions. A great resource for this is Glassdoor.com. You can simply search for a job title or a specific company to find out their salary ranges for current employees.

Every time I'm looking for a job, I've turned to Glassdoor.com to find the average salary range for that position. If you're based in China, Kanzhun.com is a similar useful resource that allows you to find out the medium pay in a given industry based on geographical location.

Another way to get a feel for the salary range you should aim for is by comparing and contrasting with other job ads similar to what you're applying for, since the compensation range is usually listed. Dajie andLiepin are good resources to consider if you're in China.

After deciding your target salary, write it down on a piece of paper so it's always top of mind during your interviews and you can answer confidently when it comes up. This also helps keep your mind clear even when you are nervous.

2. Your goal salary is more important than what you’re making now

When the conversation of salary came up, I was often get asked about how much I’m making now. It’s totally appropriate to only give a target range instead of sharing your past salary. There's no reason to provide your current salary: It can be irrelevant, since you might be a different location, title, company, and industry. Always know that you can speak to what you are looking for — not what you currently have — as long as it is within reason.

The worst thing they can say is “no”: And, if that's the case, why waste time with companies that are not going to pay you what you deserve?

I once went in for an interview with my target salary set for $65,000. During the interview, the hiring manager asked me, “what are you currently making in your position?” I only answered, “I am looking for positions in the $65,000-75,000 range.” My preparation for the salary conversation enabled me to confidently state what I was looking for, without needing to explain that I was making $50,000 at the time in a totally different industry.

3. Confidence is key

Going into an interview with the “I probably won't get it,” mindset does not put you in the position of power. You have to go in with a confident, executive mindset. Feeling prepared and knowing your value are key points.

Knowing the unique value you bring to the table will help you negotiate from a position of power. Before my interviews, I always create a list of my top skills and strengths. I do this by looking up the job description for the company I am interviewing with and identifying where I can excel in that role. I write down my thoughts and read it over a few times before going into the interview. This has been tremendously helpful for me as I am able to recall these talking points when speaking about my past experience and during the salary discussion.

You've got this! Remember: Opportunities come to those who are prepared.
