Never bring up salary in the first interview. If the employer asks what salary you are looking for, be prepared to answer.

  • Know what the salary range is for similar positions in the area. Visit our resource page for a list of websites on salary information.
  • Be realistic and respond with a range ($30-$35 thousand) rather than a specific number.
  • Mention that the range is what you have identified through research and ask if it is consistent with this employer's view of the values of this position.
