    Is compensation the most important factor for you when taking a new job?

      In addition to compensation, there are many other factors to a fulfilling career. Talk to the interviewer about other factors that are important to you when considering a new job.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Salary is important to me because I know that I am skilled and well educated. With that said, I do look at the full picture which includes factors such as benefits, employee discounts, commission opportunities, and workplace culture."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "At this point in my career, I value fit and hours more than I do compensation."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Several factors are important to me when taking a job. Compensation is a driving component of that along with company mission, culture, benefits, and location."

      Anonymous Answer

      "Since this is my first time taking a job, I am focused on receiving experience and hours."

      Rachelle's Answer

      I would suggest leaving out the fact that you are taking your first job, and focusing more on what type of compensation and perks you are looking for.

      "Fair compensation is a priority to me as well as joining a business that offers solid training, and flexible hours around my school schedule."
