Want a good salary? How to go about it...

Most job seekers in Kenya tread carefully when it comes to asking for more pay. It’s understandable — after the relief of landing a job, negotiating a salary can be the last thing from your mind. I recently got an email question and frankly it has not been the first. So I thought about it and I have gone through the same where I felt I should be earning higher but I really didn’t know the steps.

It can even feel awkward as most Kenyan professionals not used to placing a value on the skills, knowledge and abilities we bring. Once in a while, asking for higher salary can even put you out of the running.

Still, delicately negotiating salary upon taking a job offer provides a significant boost in pay down the line and is well worth the complexities. Compiled over subsequent years a few thousand bob quickly adds up.

Considering a new role or job? Here’s how to excel in the art of negotiation:

Interview blunders you should always avoid

In this world everything is about perception and marketers can tell you this very well. I have a brother of my friend who works at KCB as a training manager although he has an MBA in Marketing and he tells me that marketing is about changing or enhancing perception which are focused on influencing the consumption behaviors of our targets. An interview is not different because the perception that you leave behind is very important and thus you should endeavor to market yourself as good as possible.

In this exercise of marketing, it is very easy to find yourself making a few mistakes here and there. The first opportunity you get to create a good impression is the three-second handshake that starts the interview. An ineffective handshake can spoil your image. A limp hand shake can give the impression of disinterest or weakness. Make the handshake short and firm to give out a positive message. We have always advised towards this. Please look at our earlier articles.

By all odds, check the following common blunders:

‘Tell us about yourself’ The dos and don’ts

I remember we have tackled this question before but a good refresher is not a bad thing. Well, let us start with the obvious; the first question in an interview is of the utmost importance as it sets the initial impression. The impression you create at the beginning sets the mood for the rest of your interview. After a little pleasantries, this is definitely the next question in line.

We will advise you to use the pleasantries very well because you do not want to tense when you are in an interview. Engage the interviewers and make sure you are at a common ground not in a case where they are throwing questions at you. Let an interview be a conversation and not an interrogation. If you let it turn to the latter, you will definitely tense and fail. The first contact is important for setting the atmosphere in the room and that is why today we want to handle this very obvious but important question.
