Default Possible to change expected salary?

  • Sent in a job application.
  • HR called back asking for expected salary.
  • Quoted a figure taking a pay cut from last drawn as I have been out of job for some time.
  • HR seemed curious why I quoted an expected salary lower than last drawn and I explained it is a conservative expected salary that should fall within the usual salary range for that position and not price myself out. My last company is known to pay better than the current company I am applying to.
  • HR later called back again to confirm an interview and gave me the application form that asks for my expected salary again.
  • Can I now quote a higher figure and take a lower pay cut without getting into trouble with the hiring manager/HR?

Put the actual figure you really want, justify if needed. Salary shouldnt be the main concern before interview for both parties.

Depends on what type of company. If MNC / blue chip or civil service, just state your real expected, they will pay at the end of the day if you do well in interview.

If SME then should sort this out with HR directly first, many of them operate based on fixed budget and anyhow increasing expectations could terminate the whole process straight away.

Agree. Better to secure the job if u are jobless. Then u can apply to other jobs while u are employed. Employers prefer it

Guess HR doesn't want to call in a candidate with expected salary too far off for an interview.

If I were you, don't indicate expected salary. Since HR already knew your verbal salary expectation. Just go ahead with the interview and see how it goes.

If the interviewers were interested in you, they will ask again your expected salary. Disclose your expectation, being the lower end at the salary you have disclosed to the HR. When it comes to actual discussion again, just tell them frankly you would be more comfortable in between your previous salary and lower end of your expected salary.

I am sure they will consider if you are a good candidate. But most importantly, do well in your interview to have such negotiation opportunities. If not, even you are willing to work for them free of charge, they will not take you in if you do not suit their selection criteria.

Ace your jobs and good luck to you.
