How to negotiate salary and benefits for IT Computer Support Job

There is a lot to take into account when negotiating for job salaries and benefits these days. The expected salary range can almost always be found on the internet, but there is more to it than that. You need to compare and contrast the benefits, such as health care, paid vacation, signing bonus, 401k, stock options, and retirement options. When all is taken into consideration, sometimes the job with the higher salary is not the better job, and sometimes it is. The company’s goal is to pay you the least they can, and your goal is to get paid the most you can. It is important to learn some tips and tricks, as well as doing some research to be prepared for salary negations. The first thing I do when looking for a job is check the internet to see what the low, high, average, and median salary is for the job I am looking for (www.payscale.com is a good place to check). Payscale will show salaries in particular locations as well as nationally. This is important because it protects you from being low-balled if you have an idea of how much you should be paid. It is important to not be overly aggressive if you care about getting the job, as an offer can always be rescinded. One thing that can ruin your chances of negotiating a better salary, is offering too much compared to what they are asking. You absolutely must be realistic. However, by no means take the job if they are not offering you an adequate amount. Once you have the salary figured out the...

Prepare for Conflict Resolution Questions in the Job Interview

How to answer conflict resolution questions during the interview. As a prospective employee, how you handle conflict is tremendously important to employers. To prepare for interview questions that deal with this, consider how you might respond to questions before you sit down with the interviewer. The better prepared you are, the better your chances of impressing the employer. Here are some example questions and explanations of conflict resolution interview questions.   Tell me about your worst boss. This is about as close to a trick question as you will get in the interview. It almost invites you to cut loose with some juicy rant. If you forget how answer this question appropriately or how you prepared for it, just remember to be professional and do not lie. The interviewer might ask this for several reasons. They want to hear either the good response or the bad response and it is your responsibility to know what each are. The interviewer wants to know how you relate to your supervisors despite your opinion of them. Ideally, we have experience with only the most qualified, organized, and professional supervisors. Every boss we have ever had was like a combination of Oprah Winfrey and Yoda, guiding us nobly through employment and bestowing great wisdom. As interesting as that might be, it is not always how reality works. There is a great chance that you have had a few supervisors of widely varying levels of professionalism. You have probably had negative opinions about some of them. If you tend to treat your supervisors with disrespect, the interviewer is hoping to gain clues about it....
