Salary Requirement Letter Sample

This free salary requirement letter sample attempts to tactfully sidestep a salary history request. Instead, it offers a negotiable, minimum, salary requirement. If sidestepping is not what you intend to do, see Salary Requirement Letters or Salary History for more samples.

You may download, personalize and otherwise modify this free salary requirement letter sample or just keep it handy as an example to write your own. It's an RTF file format, which is compatible with most word processors (such as Microsoft® Word) and safe to download.

But first, please read the Important notice below, which includes the download link.

Because of differences in the way that Web browsers and word processors display pages, the format of the salary requirement letter sample displayed below differs slightly from the download version created in a word processor.

If you copy and paste this salary requirement letter sample from your screen instead of downloading it, the format might not stay intact.

This salary requirement letter sample is in a full-block style, business-letter format. But when emailing salary requirement letters, they don't necessarily need to be quite as formally formatted.

For example, you could delete the letterhead, date and recipient's address if you want, because an email will automatically include informal equivalents. It's a good idea to keep at least the salutation (Dear...) and complimentary close (Sincerely...), but you can change them to your preference.
