What are your salary expectations?

on Wednesday, 12 June 2019. Posted in Our News

What are your salary expectations?

This can be a tricky question to answer. You don’t want to oversell or undersell yourself.

Salary is a critical discussion as part of the recruitment process. The easiest way to manage this is to work with your Recruitment Specialists at PN Personnel.  We can smooth and progress this discussion – by being the middle man between yourself and the employer.

As one of our job seekers we will have robust discussions with you regarding your salary expectations, depending on the role we are discussing with you.  We will also relate back to you the details of the vacancy, and the employer’s expectations, so we can guide you as to where the vacancy is positioned from the company’s perspective. Together we negotiate to find a suitable salary positioning acceptable to both parties.

Throughout your career the salary question is one which will always be asked, so it is best to be prepared.  A little bit of research can provide the tools to answer this question confidently to a potential employer.

This article from Trade Me sums it up nicely:

As Recruitment Specialists we work daily across the many industries in the Manawatu region, and possess a solid understanding of the salary ranges of industry positions.  Through our long-standing relationships with our many employers, we can guide job seekers with regards to salaries and company benefits. We know the “what’s in it for me” and can explain the company offering (looking not only at salary, but other benefits such as flexibility, career progression, their working environment and team culture). 

If you are a job seeker looking for your next opportunity in your career, or an employer looking to recruit, partner with us.  Utilise our industry knowledge on the local market and tap into our PN Personnel job seeker database, we connect with job seekers locally, nationally and internationally. 

Together we can find a recruitment solution to further your career or improve your company team.

    Technology assists but will never replace a robust recruitment strategy

    Technology has advanced in leaps and bounds, but it will never replace the value in real connections, conversations and relationships. For recruitment it is our relationships, built and developed on understanding and trust, which are key to recruitment success.
