Salary Requirement Letter Example

This salary requirement letter example states a negotiable range in a full-block style business-letter format. (It matches our Sample Salary Requirement Letter, but has the "blanks" filled in.) An example is all it is, as employers or recruiters might ask for the exact minimum salary that you're willing to accept.

Workers, especially white-collar workers, typically obtain their largest salary increases by landing new jobs. Whether or not you're changing jobs to get a raise, it's still a good idea to check salary surveys to ensure that you're not cheating yourself.

Due to cost-of-living increases, the industry-standard salary range for your occupation and "rank" might have become more generous than your most-recent merit raise reflects.

It's also a good idea to resist the urge to "beef up" your minimum salary requirement too much, in an attempt to obtain a huge raise. You might inadvertently price yourself out of contention for the job, before you even get to an interview to negotiate a raise.

But don't under-price yourself either. Again, check salary surveys.

See Salary Requirement Letters for the sample form of this and other salary requirement letter examples, that you may download for free and edit for personal use. Included is a salary requirement letter example that tactfully sidesteps an employer request for same, by attempting to land an interview to first discover more about the job.
