Going Back to Work and Negotiating Salary

Rule of thumb for salary discussion in the interview - Wait for employers to bring it up and avoid being dragged into that discussion before you have had a chance to sell yourself.

Per Jack Chapman, author of Negotiating Your Salary: How to Make $1000 a Minute,
"Salary negotiation is all about timing. The time to talk about salary is when they say they want you for the job. Before that, it’s a moot point...Don’t give them a chance to eliminate you based on salary."
