How much am I worth?
Belgians say that one of the most important factors considering a job opportunity is salary, next to mobility, work live balance and career growth possibilities. So, before negotiating your salary, you need to know your market worth. So, the first thing you need to do is research salaries.
So, what to do? How can you tell if the job you’ve just been offered pays enough or if your current salary compares to the market rate?
So while you’re conducting your job search, research salaries for the career field and the geographic area you’re interested in. It’s important to be prepared when a prospective employer asks you your salary expectations or makes you an offer. Even if you are contentedly employed, it makes sense to know what you should (or could) be earning.
