Negotiating the salary you deserve  Image

Negotiating the salary you deserve 

​When seeking a new job, it’s imperative to know the market, understand where you fit within it, and form a realistic salary expectation to stick to. A good talent partner will help you to know your worth within the industry and organization you’re interviewing for and will assist with communicating those expectations back to the hiring manager, but no one is a better advocate for you than you. Learning how to negotiate a salary when you receive a job offer is a vital skill for both now and in the future, and when done appropriately, will put you in a better position not just financially, but also in terms of how valued you feel in your role. We know that feeling appreciated and adequately compensated for our time, effort, and expertise has a direct impact on productivity, engagement, and general happiness within a company, so salary negotiations play an important part for both sides.It can be difficult to communicate those expectations as a professional hoping to onboard with a new company, and there is certainly a residual stigma around speaking about money and asking for more that is hard to overcome. At LVI Associates, we have observed that professionals who negotiate their salary are presented with a much better job offer, so good communication skills and an understanding of your contribution can really pay off. As a general rule, always assume the offer is up for negotiation. And don’t forget to approach the process with positivity, as chances are the hiring manager isn’t crazy about negotiating, either. Here are our top tips on how to negotiate for the salary you deserve.​Know the industry salary trendsTrying to negotiate for a higher salary without being familiar with industry trends will get you off to a bad start. Information is your biggest asset and conducting some research as well as speaking openly to a talent partner that knows your industry, the hiring company, and what you have to offer, will vastly improve your bargaining power. You can be a negotiating pro, but without being able to back up your requests with solid reasoning, it will be harder for the hiring company to take your expectations seriously. Pay particular attention to the most sought-after roles and skills within your industry and think about how your experience relates. Being able to recognize when your skills are transferable to a particularly in-demand area will add to your negotiation power. ​Start negotiating only when you have a firm offerThere is a process to be followed when it comes to receiving and accepting a job offer and understanding the etiquette will help your negotiation when the time comes. If you are interested in a position but it doesn’t meet your salary expectation, resist the temptation to bargain until the company has given you a formal offer. This is your signal that your skills, expertise, and personality are a strong match for the business and the role and is a great asset to you when it’s time to tell them why you’re worth the higher salary. Once the ball is in your court, you can use the fact that they believe you’re right for the job along with your understanding of the industry and the market to your advantage, making it harder for them to dismiss your requirements.It can also be worthwhile to take a reasonable amount of time to consider the offer rather than jump into negotiations. Tell the hiring manager that you’re serious about the offer and the position, but that you need some time to consider the whole picture. Be gracious and enthusiastic but take the time you need to prepare for negotiations and signal to them that there may be elements of the offer that don’t align with your requirements. Chances are they’ll have a counteroffer in mind for you.​Build the business caseIn order for a company to seriously consider your request for an increased salary offer, it must make commercial sense for the business. Make a strong case, show that you understand the company's current financial situation, and know who has the power to negotiate. While likeability shouldn’t be underestimated in the hiring process and a large part of your job offer will be to do with character fit, it’s not enough for them to like you when it comes to financial compensation. They have to believe your worth in fiscal terms, so don’t expect your personal compatibility to get you the salary increase you want. Instead, explain precisely why your requirements are justified in a business sense; your glowing personality will just make them glad your business case checked out.​Suggest an exact number for your salaryTime is of the essence, and hiring managers are particularly strapped for it while conducting interviews alongside their other duties. Therefore, they’ll likely appreciate a direct approach to your negotiation in terms of giving them the exact offer you’re looking for. It can be a powerful strategy in that it keeps the ball rolling and avoids pointless back and forth. Many studies suggest that candidates who use a specific number end up with a final offer much closer to the figure they were hoping for. Your potential employer will assume you have done your research on your market value and want to stay competitive in their offer. Don't suggest a range – you will always get offered the lowest if the manager knows there's room to haggle down.​Reveal your current salary when negotiatingOutside the US, the hiring manager may ask what you are currently earning, which can be awkward if you feel you are currently being underpaid. It might be tempting to lie and state a higher salary more in line with what you’re seeking, but if you're unhappy with your current pay, it can be valuable to tell them why. Include all your benefits, bonuses and confidently explain the figure you're hoping for while making the case for why. If anything, they’ll have a more genuine understanding of what you know your worth to be, and that salary is important enough for you to walk away from a role that isn’t aligned with your requirements.​Have a walk away pointKnow your limits and your expectations and keep them firmly in mind. Have a pre-considered ‘walk away’ point - the figure you’re absolutely unwilling to drop below. Base this on your financial need and the market value of the role, but keep in mind the role itself. Why are you interviewing for the position in the first place? Is your passion for the work worth lowering your salary expectations? ​Get help negotiating your salarySpeaking with a specialist talent partner will help you understand your worth in the context of current industry trends and the wider job market, too.

Acing your interview

Now that you are this outstanding applicant who received an interview opportunity. Be prepared and get ready to ace your interview with the below tips at the different stages:Pre-interviewDuring the interviewPost-interview​Pre-interviewResearch the prospective company.Bring your portfolio and any work samples.Be proactive and prepare in advance any questions to ask the hiring manager:We have previously mentioned that tenure is important for companies. Leverage the Q&A session to demonstrate that you are looking to build your career with the new employer. Ask questions about the company and their career plan for you. Check if the company has any mentorship programs to help progress your career and if there are any mentors/role models to learn from. Find out if the company has any equity scheme for employees. Asking the right questions can help convey your desire to have a long-term career with the company you’re interviewing for. ​During the interview​Explaining gaps in a CV It’s important to be transparent. According to a survey from LinkedIn, 96% of hiring managers will still hire someone who has been made redundant due to Covid-19, so don’t be afraid to share this information.  An interview is the opportunity to tell your story and get to know the hiring manager. Be prepared to share what you have achieved during time off – that can be independent consulting work, enhancing your skillsets (technical/software skills) or advancing your learning.   ​Salary - How to avoid overselling or underselling?​Step 1Identify what is important to you before heading into the interview, whether that is a higher salary, better benefits, or flexibility at work. That will impact your salary expectation.Step 2Always try to avoid answering this question. But how? Instead, reply with:"I have a full understanding of your company and the role. I would like to think/speak to my family before I come back to you by tomorrow.”"If you have never received a job description, “Can you please share the job description with me so that I can better gate the salary expectation for a role like this?”“I am looking for a salary that is reflective of my skillset. What would someone with a similar background in your company receive?”Step 3Do not give a salary range – the last thing you want is to be on the bottom rank. Give a number that you feel is feasible and competitive in the market. Currently, the market salary increment average is around 3%-6%. Opening a discussion about flexible/hybrid workWe highly advise to not discuss working from home or flexible working arrangements in the first interview. With interview processes usually around 2-3 rounds, the 2nd or final interview will be the best time to ask about flexible work arrangements. ​Rather than asking directly, you could reframe a question to “What are the current working arrangements for the team?” or “Is the current team mostly working from the office”. By rephrasing the questions, this can come across as an expression of interest for the working style and how the team operates instead of demanding the right to work from home.​Working from home or flexible work is a fairly new concept. If the arrangements have been agreed, it’s important to get this included in the contract or have written confirmation in an email when the offer letter is sent.   The must-ask question: why are you leaving your current company? It’s crucial not to speak badly about your current or ex-employers. Always turn it back into positive, you could say something along the lines of: “Everything is fine and pretty good in my current/previous company. I am looking to move because your company is the leader in the market. I want to learn from the best leader to broaden my horizon and further expand my skill set to grow within your company.” Use your research, “I want to be part of this new project that your company is doing. I believe my skill set can add value to the team/project.”  By answering smartly, it shows:You are really interested in the company.You are passionate about what they do.You are knowledgeable about the market.You have done the research and you know about their company. Post-interview Always follow up – drop a note to share your gratitude and connect with a hiring manager on LinkedIn. It’s advantageous for a hiring manager to remember you so you can establish a relationship – which is useful for referrals.​Ready?
