There’s a job opening for a physical therapy position at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. There is a section that I am required to fill out in the application that feels like a trick haha. What number do I put for “ Salary Expectations”. In my last employment at a hospital in NYC I was making a little over 100k. I understand that this may not be realistic in Dallas?Im afraid if I match my prior salary HR won’t take me seriously and overlook my application. Thoughts?

Something I’ve learned is never give a number first. If you can, ask what the range is for the job and if they are willing to budge a little if necessary. If you don’t have the option to say that and they want a number, always high ball.

I just put “Willing to negotiate after learning more about role” in that section. The salary expectations question on the form is recruiting screening tactic to weed people out of a phone screen. It’s annoying. Once you get a phone call or interview, ask for their range. If they aren’t budging, then say an extremely high number. If they say that’s too high, then throw it back at them and ask “well what is your range?”

Thank you for the advice!

Totally agree - don’t enter a salary expectation on the form. You’ll want to be able to take into consideration total compensation as well before landing on a wage.

I made the mistake of entering an expected wage on an application without knowing the specifics of benefits offered. In doing so I set myself up for a decrease in total compensation compared to my prior employer. Thankfully I was able to make a compelling argument as to why my value to the company warranted a higher salary than what I entered on the application, but doing so likely wouldn’t have been necessary if I hadn’t filled in that box

If it doesn’t require a number I always write negotiable

I am underpaid in my organization as per my 5.5 years of experience. In the salary discussion round I said 100% on my current CTC which would be around 10lpa & they agreed to it. I think 10lpa is still low for my experience range but I couldn't demand more because my current CTC was too low.

I just want to know if they will decide the offer based on what I expected or they will decide based on what the market and their company budget is for my experience range??

The suspense is KILLING ME! Currently waiting to hear back if I get a job offer or not. It’s dragged out 3 days since wage negotiation. One minute they act like I got the job the next I feel unsure. They told me it could come down to whoever asked for the least amount of money… I stayed within the range they gave. I have a lot of experience and meet all of the qualifications and then some so I asked for the mid-high range. Hopefully it wasn’t too high! Just needed to vent…
