TIP #1 – PORTRAY OPTIONS
Tell your employer that you are interested in their job, AND that you are interviewing for other opportunities. If you receive the offer, and they believe they are in a competitive situation, you will maximize the amount offered to you. But they have to want you for the job. For this to work, be careful not to play this hand too hard.
TIP #2 – HAVE THE OTHER SIDE TALK MONEY FIRST
When they ask you, “What is the salary you are looking for?” ask, “What is the job paying?” instead of stating an amount. If they wish to pay you more than your minimum, you have won. If they press you and there is a salary you are hoping to make, for example $50,000, state, “The other opportunities I am interviewing for are paying around $50,000.”
TIP #3 – ALWAYS ASK FOR MORE
No matter what you are offered say, “I am very interested in this opportunity and I hope it works out. I was hoping for a little more.” This is the only way to know if you are leaving money on the table.
