How much can you ask for? : Electronic Resumes


Often….a candidate is asked to put salary expectations in a cover letter. When you are starting a new career or have been out of work for a while you may have no feel for what a fair salary is for the position you are interested in. If you know people in the business, ask them what kind of starting salary you can expect. In addition, there are resources at your disposal to help you. You can use internet reports to find out what an appropriate salary range is for someone with your background. The worst thing you can do is price yourself out of the job or out of a fair salary before your resume has ever been read.


You can ask for more money if you can support the claim that you're worth it. To do that you need to understand the value of your skills, experiences and education to the specific employer. If you know specifically what the employer values in an employee filling your desired job, be sure to highlight how you match those valuable skills. Highlight it in your cover letter, in your resume and most importantly in your interviews.


When people talk about how much, they normally are thinking about base pay. If you find that you cannot ask for as much as you think you deserve because the company won't pay that or doesn't value your experience the same way you do, then it's time to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. Concede the lower salary and consider asking for a salary review in three or six months. Another approach is to ask for a signing bonus which is sometimes a way of increasing a total pay package without upsetting the company's fixed salary structure. Additional stock options, vacation time and bonus opportunity are also vehicles to help you get to the total compensation you deserve.
