What are your salary requirements?

How to Use

Interviewer: What are your salary requirements?

Kevin: I'm expecting to receive somewhere between $50,000 - $60,000.

Interviewer: And how did you come up with that number?

Kevin: I know that the average pay for an entry-level position is about 42,000 per year. Since I have a few years of experience and a master's degree, I expect to be paid significantly more than the average entry-level worker.

Interviewer: I see. Would you consider taking a lower salary if it included some stock options or performance incentives?

Kevin: I'm not sure. I would need to see all of the details, and then I could let you know.

Interviewer: That is understandable.
