To ensure that the offer is a smooth transition in the overall recruitment process incorporate the following four steps: 1. Begin with the end in mind 2. Set the tone 3. Be prepared 4. Always be in control Begin with the end in mind. The salary negotiation process begins with the first conversation you have with the candidate during the phone screening. A typical phone screen lasts 30 minutes. This beginning conversation should evolve around what skills the candidate has how their skills can benefit the company how our role can benefit the candidate career and what is the candidate salary history along with their salary goals. Set the tone. By beginning with the end in mind you are also setting the tone.
Inform the candidate why you need this information also letting them know that once they reveal their current salary you will share your salary range. If they ask for you to first reveal your salary range... don t; keep the control. To put the candidate at ease you could explain to them how your salary process works i.e. when it is time to put together an offer the H.R. team reviews the candidate skills their salary request and the skills/salaries of current team members before confirming an offer figure. Sometimes the candidate will reveal what they are currently earning and say they are flexible in regards to their next salary; this is an acceptable response at which point you can inform them of your process to come up with an offer figure.
Don t put all your eggs in one basket and have to start from scratch if your desired candidate suddenly drops out of the running at the last minute. Always be in control. Control in this case does not mean having the upper hand or engaging in power-play but rather guiding the candidate and watching out for red flags. The candidate needs to know that you have their best interest at heart and that you are the one controlling the interview process from beginning to end... not the candidate and not the hiring manager. Sometimes a candidate will reach out to the hiring manager while bypassing the recruiter.
