Welcome to Episode 7 of Career & Employability Talk with Segun Akiode.

This is a follow-up discussion to Episode 6.

This week’s episode of the podcast is devoted to answer a job seekers question of “How do I negotiate a salary with an employer, so that I will not price myself low?”

This is a very common interview question job seekers must be able to answer with ease. But, my experience with job seekers (new entrant/fresh graduates and experienced job seekers) shows that many lack the adequate wisdom to answer this question in the most appropriate manner. For some, they see the question as an opportunity to name their price for the job and for some, they are timid at answering.

This question is often used by employers as a ‘deciding factor’ of who gets the job after the candidates’ suitability for the job has been ascertained already. Every employer wants the best employee he can ‘afford’ and every job seeker wants a job that would pay him the best pay available.
