How to Answer the “What Are Your Salary Expectations?” Question

1) Start with research.

2) Check in with yourself.

  1. Your floor number: What is the number at which you would walk away from the job? This is the bottom and floor of where you’re willing to be.
  2. Your solid number: What salary number would you feel good about?
  3. Your ideal number: What’s the ideal salary you’re looking for?

3) Prep your language.
