Dennis Kennedy’s Feb 24th Links of the Week included a link to this:
The answer to the toughest interview question, “what’s your salary range?”
Law librarians get a variation on this interview question from database vendors: “How much are you willing to spend?” For some negotiation strategy advice on this subject, see “You Want What? How to Have Fun while Negotiating Contracts,” by Sarah Nichols (Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP) at 12 AALL Spectrum #4, CRIV Sheet, vol. 30, #2 (Feb 2008), pp. 10-12.
(Note: I’m not sure that’s really the toughest question during a job interview, but it’s sure one of them.)
