Hi! I am new to this site so I apologize if this has been discussed previously.
I lost my job due to Covid back in March and have been looking for a job to no evail. I’ve had interviews but nothing has worked out therefore I believe it is something I’m saying or doing in my interview that is not getting me even a second interview. One of the topics that I have trouble with is knowing how to navigate the “salary topic” I know that it’s best to not give a number because it can either hurt you or help you. I’ve read articles with suggestions on how to do this but I don’t know if my execution is great. Also, there have been times where I’m sort of forced to give a number- how do I convey that I would like my salary to be $X but I’m willing to take less because I’m pretty desperate to get something. I’m a single mom about to lose it all so if it’s $10k less than I had hoped I’m willing to take the job because I need it.
Thank you !
