Admin I would expect to be right around 30k. It depends on your experience whether it should be higher or lower than that.
I do celebrate Thanksgiving. idk where it will be held this year. My dad's the pickiest about it, so I have to wait to see where he wants it.
Yeah I was making that much when I lost my old Admin. job back in 2010. And even though that was in a different state, the cost of living isn't that much different here. I'd hope I'd at least get that much. It's tight but I can make it work enough to get out of my parents house. That's my main goal.
I agee with the above, about 30k sounds normal, depending on experience.
I would definitely say yes wear makeup. I hate to say it, but people & employers are shallow.
Sadly I agree. I think if I take the time to put on makeup, it'll show that I care enough to look presentable for a job. I don't like wearing so much that it makes me look like a different person, but enough to show that I care about my appearance.
I think that's a good tactic. Sadly, I recently heard they also judge women on their hair and nail polish (whether it is chipped or not). It's supposed to show whether or not we will take pride in our job. Sigh, I'm pretty sure I can do my job on a bad hair day.
My hair has been a never ending bad hair day ever since I had a bad hair cut last December. Thankfully it's starting to look "normal" again so hopefully it'll do. I'll have to remove my pretty blue nail polish though. I agree with you though. My nails and hair aren't going to keep me from doing a good job, but unfortunately I get the mentality of it all.
I mean, I would answer with my salary requirements - I don't know what that would be for the position you interviewed for, in your location. So I'd suggest googling it. Pay will be based on your experience, location, and position.
Sure. I mean, go minimal and neutral and practice before hand.
I googled it and it was pathetically low pay. Not so low that I couldn't live off of it, but it makes me hate living in this state even more.
The average for this area was around $10-$11 per hour. I was making $14.60 doing this type of work at my old job. I'm hoping my four years of experience will help that. But I'm not going to worry about it just yet. For now I just need to nail the interview and get the job offer.
My brother-in-law and his girlfriend live in the Destin FL area, and I was pretty shocked at how crappy their pay was. I think I saw you say you're in Florida somewhere. If not, please disregard my anecdotal commiseration.
Yep I am. I'm near the Tampa area. And yes. The pay in Florida is horrible. Yet the cost of living in most places is pretty high. Rent here is pretty much the same as rent where I lived in Cali. Yet in Cali. the pay rate is much better. It's pretty pathetic.
it would really depend on the position and the location/cost of living
i might also raise it a few thousand. not much, but maybe an extra 2k - you never know how much room theyve got for salary negotiations.
maybe a little - but i wouldnt want to be trying something new for the first time. do what youve done before and you know looks good.
yes. it depends. last year i had one for just me and my bf. but this year were traveling to his families since we wont see them at christmas.
Yeah if I do wear makeup and I'm pretty sure I will. I'll do what I usually do, but tone it down just a smidge. It's silly. a part of me thinks I'm doing it to make myself into someone I'm not. But I've been wanting to for a while and it's the perfect opportunity.
I have no idea about salary. If you're confident in your makeup abilities and think it'd be fun, then definitely wear some, but don't overdo it.
I do celebrate Thanksgiving! My parents have a really incredible group of friends who are more like an extended family than my actual extended family. We generally shift Thanksgiving from house to house. This year it's going to be at Bruce's again.
My confidence is good enough to keep the makeup pretty simple. I just never bother wearing it these days, but I think maybe it would help me feel a bit more professional.
id say 25-30k
you could try a nice light eyeliner. maybe a brown or bronze color? and maybe a little mascara.
yes i love thanksgiving NOMNOMNOM. usually we go to one of my grandparents house or an aunts.it rotates every year.
Well why don't you lie and say you made 35 at your old job so you want 40
why undersell yourself?
if they like you you can do it
If they call my old job, would they inquire about salary? Otherwise yeah, I plan on doing whatever I can to get as much as possible. I live in Florida, and in this city in general, although the cost of living is a bit high, the pay rate is really sucky.
You should look into confidentiality but I don't think they can say what your salary was. I think you should at least ask for 35...
Or say you were paid 35 and that you would at least want that and then negotiate for an extra week vacation (they dont have to pay extra for vacation)
I mean 30 is not a lot (not trying to put you down but thats just not enough to support yourself). I'm a socialist what can I say
Oh I know. I was barely making it on my own making that much before. And then when I moved and took on a retail job, I was barely making $10k/year. So while $30K feels like a LOT compared to that, I need to be able to afford life here because hopefully this job will help get me into my own place. Even if I'm just renting.
i agree with asking for a bit more and trying to negotiate a higher salary or extra vacation. don't just take whatever they throw at you.
obviously, it can depend on your location and other factors, but 30K is enough to support yourself. plenty of people do it all the time.
well it certainly isn't in my city but it can depend on location and factors you're right. I also live in Canada where taxes are higher so 30,000 would be even less afterwards.
I'm not saying that it's not a good thing to earn but given the context, coming from a job that is 30, 000 you should aim for more
I'm just so afraid of being too particular with the pay. Obviously I want what I deserve, but I'm afraid they'll think I'm being cocky or something and not want to hire me. I'm not getting many callbacks for jobs and can't afford to be too picky. At the same time, I don't want to risk not getting a decent salary either.
Yeah I understand. But you also have to think about the fact if you take a really low wage it's going to be that way for a long time, so if you ask for 5000 more thats 25000 more in 5 years. Whereas if you just take what you can get and remain unemployed for a couple months, youd less way less.
Or so...I see it that way
congrats on your interview! i would suggest wearing a little make-up to the interview, even if it's just some mascara and a neutral lip balm.
we have thanksgiving at my parents' or sister's house every year. both are about two hours away.
Good luck with your job search! I would looooveeee to make that much.
AH! I was trying to remember how to do that. Thank you!
If you ever forget check the TQC user info!
WOW that is so cool seriously
