    The Mount Sinai Hospital was initially looking for someone with 5 years' experience in a similar role. Considering you have just 2 years' experience, would you be willing to accept this position at a lower salary?

      How to Answer

      Are you willing to earn your way up if the interviewer does not want to offer you top compensation? Discuss with the interviewer what you would expect for compensation if offered this position.

      Darby's Answer

      "I would be happy to earn my way to the top compensation level if required. I do assure you that, despite my being shy of experience by a couple of years, I am a top performer and you would not be disappointed in my performance."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I understand I do not quite meet the qualifications of experience you are looking for and am willing to be compensated in adjustment to that fact. However, I do look forward to proving my worth to The Mount Sinai Hospital in hopes to be considered for the median salary for the role."

      Rachelle's Answer

      This answer is good; however, try to draw in what you have in experience versus what you lack.

      "My two years of experience are highly valuable, and I have learned a great deal over that time. I am confident that, despite falling short of these years, I can deliver what you need. As far as compensation, I am aware that this role offers a lower salary; however, I am interested in the complete package, not just the base salary offered at this time. I see a future here with a lot of exciting opportunities."
