How do you answer when an interviewer asks your salary requirements?
I've had most of my jobs for years at a time, so I've only interviewed a handful of times in my life. You'd think though, that at this stage in my career I'd be able to smoothly handle the salary requirements question, but I found myself struggling with it recently. I don't want to price myself out, but I also know what I'm worth, and I've been surprised by many interviewers bringing up this question much sooner in the conversation than they did in years past. So what's a smooth & professional way to answer the question when you don't know what their exact range is for the position, and you don't want to price yourself too high or too low?
