A Strategy to a Happy Salary

I am a firm believer that you should find a job that makes you happy. That’s the number one thing. But of course, it’s also important to look at it from a financial perspective. When your examining in a prospective job, you also must make sure that you are earning as much as you are contributing to a company or organization. It doesn’t have to be the highest paying job, but one that makes you fulfilled and well compensated. Here is a full proof formula you may want to consider in finding the job that really suits you.

 (doing study X knowing your value) + considering costs + managing potentials + exercising diplomacy = Getting the income you want.

Breaking the Formula Down with some explanations: 

1.  Doing Research and Knowing Your worth.

Never go to a job discussion without doing your study. Look at comparative jobs in your in industry to gain a reasonable idea of how much you’d like to be paid. You should also look at your credentials and see what kind of skills you can bring into the company. Devote a few hours learning everything you can about the company from as many sources as you can. Talk to friends and contacts, read current news releases, and, spend some time on Google. Regularly, candidates just look at the information a company is pushing out via their website and social media but looking more in depth you will get the larger picture about the company. Get an intelligence of “who” the company is and how to express a similar personality during your interview.

Different companies use different kinds of interviews, so ask what you'll be faced with. For instance, some companies will ask case questions or brain teasers while others will give a usual set of typical interview and leadership questions. Asking the recruiter about the interview setup ahead of time is totally reasonable game. And once you know, capitalizing time to become aware with this style can make an enormous difference. Even if you’re an efficient interviewing engine, it’s important to spend time thinking carefully about what skills, activities, and interview answers will resound with your interviewers most.
You must have an answer to "tell me about yourself" prepared with you. Interviewers constantly ask it, and you want to be sure to nail this first part of the interview. Don't be thrown off by the standard, "What's your biggest weakness?" Think of something that you skirmish with but that you’re working to progress. For example, perhaps you’ve never been strong at public speaking, but over the previous few years, you've taken on leadership roles and volunteered to run meetings to help you be more comfortable when addressing to people. Find lists of common interview questions, but don't prepare by writing out your entire answer; instead, list down few notes or bullet points and keep them on hand for the interview itself. Don’t forget about your performance, finding some numbers, ratios, increases, or quotas you can use when talking about your responsibilities and accomplishments really sugarcoats the deal and helps you tell a hiring manager why you’re so good.

Remember, you'll get asked why you're interested on the role and the company. You must answer this question, if you can’t, you shouldn’t be in the interview. So, make sure you can, contemplate why you’re interested in the role and find a couple of key factors that make it a great fit for you. Also, prepare a few clever questions for when it's your turn to ask. Make sure they're considerate ones that show you’ve been paying attention and have done your study when it comes to researching the company and the specific job, you’re after.
Make your best interview clothing. For companies that have a business or dress code, keep your look straightforward and conventional for the first interview. Make sure you get your clothing dressed, constrained, and tailored or an on-trend outfit is best. Do a little entertaining, because looking at your finest benefits you feel your best. If that means you need a facial, new haircut, razor shave, or even a new interview clothing, then do it. Feeling decent about yourself will increase your confidence and I probably don’t have to tell you that self-confidence is key to landing your dream job.

Spend time before the interview not reviewing questions but reflecting on your career timetable to date. When you know your story inside and out, it’s much relaxed to apply examples to just about any interview question. Knowing what might crop up in a contract also helps. Watch out for terms like employment bonds (a period that an employee has to remain in a company) and non-competitive clauses (in case you resign, this clause prohibits you from joining your former company’s competitor for a period of time). Things like that can affect the way you negotiate your contract. 

2. Considering Expenses 

Seeking on a standpoint job or career for us can be daunting, mainly when we must move to a different place. We think thousand times before deciding for our career or position title move to reach our indescribable goal or dream. These conclusions that we analyze are made of seeking increase of income or salary, but these figures can be deceptive. Cost of living varies time to time, and while an income enhancement might lead us to believe we’re getting forward, the reality is a slightly more complex.

One of the most mutual financial mistakes individuals make is assuming that a larger income will essentially equate to a more prosperous life. Money is not undisputable, its value changes once you look past the horizon, you start to get an intelligence of just how eagerly the cost of living can fluctuate. It’s very important to consider how much you expect to spend in a month. I think a good ratio is 40% of your salary should go to expenses. Of course, it really depends, but I think you should not go over 60%, cause you’re not leaving any room for daily expenditures. You want have room for savings and things like traveling. 

3. Managing Expectations 

Typically, the approach of a company will ask you what you expect to receive as compensation. Answering this question can be complicated and potentially intuitive. If you say something too high, they may think that your self-esteem is too high. They may not willing to hire you in, because there are other applicants out there that can render the same service at a lower cost. If you reply a figure that is too low, you could also compromise the negotiations, because they may also think you’re not suit to the position. Don’t stay on a job that you don’t enjoy. If you’re glad in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have a peace of mind. And if you have this, along with healthy body, you’ll have more success in life than you could possibly have think of. Simplicity has many benefits. It gives independence, time, and reduces stress. Simplicity also reduces the amount of essential cost for life. As a result, it offers chance to choose job based on many features, not just the scope of the income. Once we learn fulfilment through less, we can balance any number of structures in choosing work. Hold simplicity. It unlocks limitless chances in life and work. 

Job seekers often think income and title are the end during negotiations. Health insurance costs are often overlooked yet impactful. They can swing the weight for or against a job, since what looks like a big knock in salary could be a loss if you’ll end up paying more for health care. In many cases, salary isn’t discussed until the end of your interview procedure, and you should wait until that time to bring up questions about health insurance costs. Or else, you’ll look presuming. Try to strike a balance by not just looking at monetary compensation they can offer. Look at the benefits that might come with it. Because sometimes, a company might not provide a lot in terms of money, but the medical benefits are good, and might even include coverage for your family. Some companies also provide gas reimbursements or allowances. Always make sure you don’t shortchange yourself, but also you can deliver on whatever they might expect from you as an employee 

4. Exercising Tact

Usually, salary negotiations are a two-part process. In the primary screening interview, the recruiter will ask the salary range that the applicant expecting for the position. If the candidate states a figure that’s within their budget, they will address the candidate that the stated salary is within their range. Then it will continue to discuss the aspects of the position and the interview process. Employers seldom make their best offer first, and job candidates who typically negotiate receive much more than those who did not try. And a well thought out negotiation makes a candidate look like a stronger or fit to the position. Based on my research, I found that those applicants who try to negotiate their salary in a positive way are seeming as more promising than those who didn't negotiate at all, because they were representing the skills the company wanted to hire them for.

Don't Talk Too Early, you never win by speaking about income early on, the time to talk about salary is when they've fallen in love with you. Before that, you're just one of many easily canned candidates. But once the employer has decided you're right for the job, it becomes a subject of, how are you going to make this happen. Clear your expectations, tell the employer what you want from the job, in terms of salary, benefits and opportunity. It may be time off, flexibility about where you work, self-rule or ownership over a specific area, it may be your title whatever has an apparent value to you. While it’s important to speak your mind about how much you’d like to receive as compensation, the tone of how you say things is important, too. Be sensitive and respectful, but also don’t be too much of a pushover. You can’t be demanding; you just must be persuasive. I think a level of self-confidence and belief in your ability to be hired or be employed is something prospective employer can definitely sense. 

Asking for a Salary Raise  

A tactic for salary negotiation is a key career skill that will help you throughout your working life. Know what you're asking for, start with the end in mind. Be strong about why is this is so important to you and your motivation behind it. Why does this have to be done now, where does your income fit into overall career course, make the effort to understand the company’s process for making pay grants. Find out how it works, who is involved and the power and influences regarding the decision. Asking for a raise in salary can be very uncomfortable thing to do. You really need to know when the best time to do it is. A good way to do is to “Write a Letter” to your supervisor, asking a meeting to discuss your performance. Your employer then gets a good idea of what you might want to discuss (which is that you’d like to be compensated more) so they can prepare for it properly. 

Go to the meeting Prepared. Write a list of things you have contributed and anything you have done above and beyond your responsibility. Your boss will not know everything that goes on, so “you should definitely speak up”. It should also be noted that its usually appropriate to ask for no more than 10% of your existing salary. Anything more than that is too much, unless you really have taken on more than you are being paid for. You have to construct a business case; you're going to need an effective business case and evidence of your skills. Top specific task you did and significant moments and measures. Include samples of your work and projects you were on, how you work with different teams and your relationships with key individuals. You need to show that you've been working well on tasks that are beyond what everyone else is doing. 

Present your case, when presenting your business case to whoever you're negotiating with, high point the successful projects you've been involved in. Draw attention to measurable information, such as statistics and timeframes. Go over your path record in manufacturing results and other stages of your work history that prove your value. Be sure to point the decision-makers towards approvals from colleagues and any supporting documents. Some people make the mistake of starting discussions like this with, “I need a raise because my expenses are going up.” Honestly, the company does not care. They won’t give you a raise because of that. At the end of the day, a discussion like this is open because you believe that you have been, and you are contributing a lot more to the company than you did before.

"Most individuals pursue success at work, thinking that it makes them happy. The truth is, if you are happy in your work, you'll be successful".
