It can be tough to gauge when to bring up the topic of salary during a job interview. You need to know what kind of numbers you’re looking at, though. Business Insider offers this simple rule of thumb for asking at the right time. Photo by Samuel Mann.

The “right time” can vary depending on the situation, but here’s an overall rule of thumb for gauging the timing for asking about your rate or salary:

There may come a moment in the process where you suddenly feel like the tables have turned: You’re no longer trying to sell your skills or qualifications to the employer — the employer is trying to sell you on the job. When that happens, you’re in the clear.

When the employer starts talking about what the position entails, what the company is like and so on, that offers an opportunity for you to come in and ask about the money organically. Again, every situation is a little different, but Business Insider suggests some additional tips at the link below.

When to Bring Up Salary When You’re Interviewing For a New Job


  • I had to google what Whie meant because im not interlect… untellig… smart person..

    “Whie was a male human who served as aJedi Padawan during the Clone Wars. He waskilled by Darth Vader during the attack on the Jedi Temple.”

  • thats pritty bull shit, TBH.

    Rule 1. Of Jagijs guide to getting a job: Ask how much, no matter what. All job interviews shuold let you ask them quesitons, and, even though people think its not something to do, I feel like it is a MUST ASK question. Espeitaly if you have more than one job interview that week. You NEED to know how much its going to be so you can work out living expensiveness and so on in advance. Even if you don’t get the job, its good to know, so you can compare to other workplaces in the same industry, so you your self can see of you are getting payed fairly.

    The ONLY people that say you should not ask are the people who don’t pay you properly.

  • They should already indicate roughly what they’re offering before the interview.

    Why waste everyone’s time.
