15 Tricky Interview Questions and How to Answer Them

PoliceLink

7. What salary are you looking for?

Bad answer:
“In my last job I earned $45,000 – so, now I’m looking for $55,000”

If you can avoid it, don’t give an exact number. The first person to name a price in a salary negotiation loses. Instead, re-iterate your commitment to the job itself. If you have to, give a broad range based on research you’ve conducted on that particular role, in your particular city.

Good answer:
“I’m more interested in the role itself than the pay. That said, I’d expect to be paid the appropriate range for this job, based on my five years of experience. I also think a fair salary would bear in mind the high cost of living here in New York City.”

    Well first let me say this I'm a very tuff young lady. I don't take anything from anybody. I dislike criminals with a passion and I know what I'm capable of.
