Question, What do you say when you get an email from HR saying that you've been advanced to the next step in the hiring process, however, in order to move forward, you have to provide your salary requirements? Basically, I feel like my response determines A) whether I have a chance at this job and B) whether I sell myself short or not! If I say an amount that's low, maybe they'll move me forward, but I wouldn't get the amount that I am entitled to? If I say an amount that's high, maybe they will can me before I get to move forward? This is for an administrator position and I am already currently employed as a teacher (not in this district). So, please no comments about "not doing this for the money" (which I clearly am not because I am employed as a teacher), but did just spend a great amount of money getting my administrator credential and know what most administration positions pay... I googled the district plus the title of the position and the average pay came out to be $40,000. That would be a pay CUT for me going from teacher to administrator. That can't be right! But, now I'm scared to put a high number for fear that I'd be cut before I can even move forward. Any ideas on how to approach this? I just want to do the right thing. I would really love this job, but also have to take care of my family.
