In this blog, we want to talk about 3 areas in the hiring we think need to be talked about more!


1. Salary

Salary seems to be a hush topic when it comes to career advice… People feel like they can’t be upfront and honest about what they need and what they are worth.


When coming up with your number, it can always seem to be a guessing game. Our piece of advice is: Don’t be afraid to ask what you are worth!


What you bring to the team, your perspective, your experience, your skills, and the value, what you need to survive are all things you should account for when giving your potential employer your number.

Do the research of what the market rate is and see what area you fall into based on your years of experience. A great way to see what the market is paying is to ask your trusted recruiter. Recruiters are placing people every single day. Who better to ask for advice. At the end of the day, you are responsible to communicate what you need, the value you will bring and what it will take to make it work.


2. References

Throughout the hiring process, many employers require a candidate to provide names and numbers of a previous employer to get a better understanding of your skills, how you work, etc.

Many times people feel reluctant to ask their previous employer of this and end up only asking a friend or a coworker but a reference from someone who directly managed you is 10X more powerful and credible. So don’t be afraid to ask!


3. The Follow Up

How much follow Up is too much? This is a question that may have come across your mind.

The typical advice out there is to send a personal note or thank you email after the interview. Once you do that, what’s next? After that initial thank you email, you can follow up as much as needed to get the feedback you need. Not to mention, if you follow up multiple times it's a way to show the hiring manager how much you want the job and that you are someone who will strive to get what they want.


After all, there is a lot of advice out there for you to go by, both good and bad make sure you know who you are getting your advice from.
