Hi Guys, I really need help on this one. What should I put in when the employer is asking for salary expectations in the application form. I am a recent graduate in IT and by doing the research I know I am worth around £24 - £26k.
But would this be more of an appropriate answer to put in the text box - “We can talk about salary once I have had a chance to review more details about the job, and the benefit package available from your company. It does not make sense for me to talk about salary before knowing if I am a fit for the position. I am sure you are willing to offer a fair wage for the position, but right now, you are more qualified to tell me what the job is worth to the company than I am.”
If not then shall I just say “Given the fact that I have already had experience in the same role in a major blue chip company and a recent graduate, I expect my salary to be competitive.” or “I expect salary to be around £24000 - £26000”.
Would be grateful if someone could help me out.
