    they have sort of distributing curve, which would state no. of people can get A, B grade etc...so it is rather disheartening when the pie is getting smaller and no. of people to get better increment also goes down the drain despite hard work been done. =(

      Hmm depends on what company, Citibank offer 3.5 for their managment associate but my friends had to go through at least 4 rounds to get in. Loreal give their trainee quite good pay too. Heard ABT give 2 K+ to their management trainees... =)

        Hi all,

        I got a question to ask. Lets say the ad puts down a salary range, e.g. 2k-2.2k specifically. But when they invite you to send in your resume, they ask you to include your expected salary. So can I still write something higher than 2.2k? Or should my expected salary be 2.2k since they already spell out that's the maximum?

          u can just give a higher one 'coz if they really want u, they will still pay u the amt.

          but bear in mind that if there's 2 candidates that r very close in mind for them, they may take ur salary expectations into account.

                How about asking for a 10 to 20% increment from your last drawn salary?

                    it depends greatly on the industry you are in, the level you are reporting too. To be an E.S., i guess you should have ample years of experience & good length of working years asking for anything above 2.5K or from 3K is no problem.

                      also depends on the size of the company. ES is is the mother of all secretaries so the salary can be expected to be more, since she will usually serve the director or a president or equivalent. The ES in my ex company draws more than $6K.

                        actually i think when sending in resume, it is not complusory to put in expected salary. So meanwhile i think your cousin can send in her resume and ask around to know about the market rate while waiting for reply from the company.

                            That depends on several things:

                            (1) Whether you have any relevant experience. If you're a fresh grad, you have no bargaining position. If you?ve worked for a few years, it is easier to justify why you should be paid more
                            (2) Market rate. If the pay is market rate, it?s hard to ask for more. If it is below, see point 1
                            (3) How much the company wants you

                              Is the current offer within the range of what you asked for in the first place?
                              If so, then nope. Cos it shows you are not very sincere in the position.
                              If not, then i think you can ask for what you actually want.
                              But be prepared that you may not get the job if they cannot meet your asking salary.

                                How much higher are you expecting or hoping to get? If it's not a lot, you can take it up, work a few months and if you think you deserve more pay, do up a list of why you deserve more pay (i.e. work and personal merits, achievements on the job so far, prevailing market rate if you're paid under that), memorise that list, and arrange a personal talk with your boss.
