5 Ways Your Resume Can Command a Higher Salary

Salary Negotiations Begin With Your Resume, Not the Job Offer

The Negotiation Process Begins Earlier Than You Think

Have you ever felt undervalued or offered a lower salary than you are worth? Were you afraid to ask for a higher salary?

If so, you are not alone. Many people avoid salary negotiation out of fear. However, even among those who are willing, it is a common misconception that the process must begin with a job offer. Salary negotiation begins much earlier in the job seeking process. How much earlier? As soon as you submit your resume. While this might be a surprise to some, it’s important to be aware for those who potentially risk undervaluing themselves for fear of asking for a better salary.

The key is to make yourself irresistible to the employer. In this age of corporate cost-cutting, having a respectable resume can help you command a better salary without having to ask. What does your resume need to accomplish in order to set the stage for additional compensation? Well you are about to find out.
