How To Talk About Money During The Hiring Process

You can’t keep going on interviews with no idea of what an employer is planning to pay you if you get the job. You have to bring up the topic of salary.

If you need inspiration to ask the salary question, just think about a plumber.

The plumber isn’t going to come over and walk around looking at the work that a homeowner needs done without talking about money. Eventually the plumber is going to say “You’re looking at about ten thousand dollars worth of work” or the homeowner is going to say “How much is this going to cost me?”

They’re not going to dance around the topic and hope for the best. Only job-seekers do that, and only a certain kind of job-seeker.

The kind of job-seeker who doesn’t bring up salary during the hiring process and hopes that s/he gets a job offer with a reasonable salary in it is afraid. That’s the only reason to keep silent about such a vital topic.

The job-seeker is afraid that if he or she brings up the salary topic, the employer might not like it. They might get mad and cast him out of the candidate pool. That’s the fear. Think about it, though – that fear isn’t reasonable. If you’re thinking about working with people who would be so hostile and crazy that they’d drop you from a candidate roster just for asking about salary, why would ever consider working with them?
