What Are Your Salary Expectations? . . . Eek! Gasp! Yikes!
Ouch, the dreaded interview question that’s asked.
What do you say? And most importantly, how do ask for what you think you deserve?
Newcomers, you are not alone if this question makes you nervous or unsure of how to answer it. Most English speaking Canadians worry about it too. Part of it’s related to Canadian culture as we don’t often discuss our incomes even with our closest friends. In addition, if your expectation is too low, a company may pay you peanuts and if too high, they may not want you and think you’re greedy.
