Searching for a new job is a job. Not to mention how annoying it is when they ask for your salary requirement. Or when they threaten you with “All resumes failing to include salary requirement will be disqualified for consideration.”
See, the thing about asking for your salary requirement is, it’s a SET-UP.
Don’t fall for it.
If you’re applying for a job that is willing to pay you $48,000 per year but you put your salary requirement at $42,000 per year…Do you really think they’ll pay you $48,000?
As mentioned before they’re Goons.
So there you are sitting there in your beige colored partition working for $6,000 less per year but you’re still expected to perform at $48k per year. The best thing to do in a case of shanghai is to pretend you’re ok with lowballing your own self. I mean, what’s $6,000 per year anyway? After taxes it’s not even that much.
Just trying to make you feel better.
I’m here for you. I’ve been in nearly every imaginable salary hole.
Me no likey employer set-ups.
