For a twist on interviewing, try an informational interview. One of the best sources for gathering information about what’s happening in an occupation or an industry is to talk to people working in the field. This process is called informational or research interviewing. An informational interview is an interview that you initiate – you ask the questions. The purpose is to obtain information, not to get a job.
While negotiating a salary and/or benefits is not always possible, many employers expect you to negotiate. It’s important to know the trends in your field so you can present a common salary range and benefits to your employer. It’s also important to know where you fit on the range – are you considered “entry level” or do you have slightly more experience than most applicants for this position? also Location can play a big role, as some areas are more or less pay than others.
