salary-negotiation When you go for a job interview, the most important thing for you to do is to get the job, on the contrary, one of the most important things is your potential salary. Here are a few tips on how to get the job you want and the salary you deserve.

1. Be flexible

You have to know what the least amount of money you will take, and the amount that you feel you deserve, then be flexible enough to give your boss the option of how much within that range he can pay you. Remember, even though he/she has read your resume and has interviewed you, he/she still does not know for sure if your work ethic will be as good as it appears once you actually get the job.

2. Be comfortable, upfront, and sincere

During the interview, just be yourself. If the person you are is not good enough for the boss, it will save you’re a miserable job experience anyway. You shouldn’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not to get the job and the salary you feel you deserve.

3. Don’t just be sloppy

Getting a job and a good salary will take a little work, and you need to make a good impression. Going into a job interview with your informal dress and a bad attitude won't get you a job period, much less good wages. Though, you have to come across as the real you, but the good, clean, hard working side of you.

4. Don’t just settle

One of the worst things you could do is let your potential employer control you to the point that you take any type of salary that he throws at you. You have the potential to be a good employee, and should get the kind of pay that you deserve based on how hard you work and what kind of benefits you will bring to the company. However, if there's a job out there that will give you a better salary than this one, you need to find it.

5. Do not be afraid to walk away

Sometimes, if you act like you're going to turn down the job offer because of your salary, some potential employers will raise the salary. If not, you are better of finding a job that will give you better, well deserved wages for the work that you do.

However, knowing what tactics to use when consulting your boss for a raise will give you better chances to get paid the money you deserve for the ambition and hard work you do.
