    When it comes to salary, most of the bloggers advise job seekers to ‘wait with salary negotiations’ until an offer is made. I think it should be the opposite: negotiations should be the starting point of ANY communications between job seekers and employers. Why invest all this time in interviews with employers that you don’t know if they are worth your time, or fit your goals??? Same for employers: why waste all this time on candidates who may fit the job, but not your wallet…? Take a look at a website called The aim to solve this issue in an interesting way: bidding. Employers can ‘bid’ on jobseekers they find interesting and negotiate a salary range with them BEFORE the interview. Job seekers can ‘bid’ on jobs they want, and negotiate their salary range before they invest their time. This way both sides invest time only in the best opportunities for them.
