How far is salary important in your first job?
By AMCAT updated on 22-Mar-2016


Does size really matter when it comes to the cheque of your first job? There are various opinions doing the rounds on whether a first time job seeker should or should not consider salary as the most important criteria. We suggest it is important that you take the middle path here. Remember, this is just your first job and you should not pin too many expectations on your pay cheque. Here’s a few things you should keep in mind when you receive an offer letter –

 

 

 

1. This is your first job and surely not the last. Most fresher’s who negotiate excessively forget that there is not a lot of experience backing their demands. At the entry level, there is no shortage of young talent and you may easily miss out on a good opportunity because the employer would have hired another appropriate candidate. Weigh your options before you go ahead and ask for an unjustified package.

 

 

 

2. Look at the intangible benefits the job has to offer. Your first job will pretty much set the tone of your entire career so understand the kind of work or growth potential that is present. Will you have the opportunity to work on challenging projects, is the industry or niche of your choice? Will you be able to learn something new? The experience you gain will play a much more important role in defining your career so think twice before you turn down an offer.

 

 

 

3. If you’re in between negotiating a salary for a new job, don’t wait for the offer to form your strategy. Research online or ask around on what is the kind of average salaries fresher’s are begin offered in the field of your choice. If you’ve done your homework well and still feel that the offer given to you is low, then have some facts to back you up. Don’t just settle if the salary is quite low as compared to industry standards. Put across your point politely but firmly and let the employer know at tall times that you are very interested in the job.
