Navigating Salary Expectations

Navigating salary negotiations during the offer stage is a critical aspect of the hiring process. Understanding and addressing candidate expectations upfront can lead to a smoother recruitment journey.

The dangers of underbidding candidates at the offer stage are real. When a candidate shares their salary expectations and you proceed with interviews, it signals a nod to their requirements. Offering less could lead them to decline or accept another job, costing you the perfect candidate and doubling your efforts.

When a candidate’s salary expectations exceed your budget, it’s beneficial to address this during the interview process. If they progress, it indicates their acceptance of your financial limitations and openness to a revised offer.
