Avoid giving an exact number or range. You might price yourself out of the position or undersell yourself.
I’m not very concerned about compensation at this point. I’d be more than happy to discuss that topic further down the road, but right now I’m far more interested in learning about the position.
If you know how much employees in the role generally earn and have a specific salary range in mind, give a number.
I’m really interested in the position so I don’t want salary to be the sticking point in our discussions, but I feel that 55,000 to 65,000 dollars per year would be a fair salary range based on my skills and experience. Again, this could vary depending on factors like benefits and vacation time, so I’d be willing to negotiate this number at a later point.
