A detailed answer and analysis of a tough interview question from Matt & Nan DeLuca, authors of the best selling "Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions" (new edition) and "More Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions"

What do you expect your starting salary to be?

Do you have enough information about this new job to determine your salary?  If not, ask for the information that is needed.  "Before I can discuss salary, I would like to know the reporting requirements and how many people I would be supervising.  In addition, what are the skill levels and experience of my staff?"  You can also ask "What are others in similar positions being paid?" 

When you can no longer stall or seek additional information..."Based on what you have told me and exclusive of other compensation elements I feel that the position would warrant a salary range of $_______ to $___________"  Name a range such as $40,000 to $45,000 to give both sides some wiggle room and allow for some give-and-take when benefits and other compensation is considered.  If you know what you are willing to accept as salary and what the market pays, using a salary range should permit you to be negotiable.

Here are more tough interview questions and situations answered in the Complete Interview Guide:

  • When do I ask for more money than the employer is offering?

  • I've already negotiated salary.  What is the best way to negotiate benefits?

  • I will need to take a step back in salary.  I don't know how to handle the question, "What is your current salary?"

  • How can I ask the interviewer to negotiate after I have already given him my price?  The interviewer acted as if the figure I gave was more than what he had in mind.
