Over on the Digital Eve Israel discussion list, Chani asked 2 questions:
Not seeking “professional” advice from the list, however I would like to know if anyone can direct me to good information on salary ranges in the area of paralegal and administrative work?
Has anyone worked in these areas or otherwise able to provide personal insights as to discussing this topic during interview?
Although it would save a lot of time if employers came right out and told you in the first interview how much they've budgeted for your job, that rarely happens no matter how many interviews you do with them. On the other hand, you will probably be asked for your salary requirements towards the end of that first interview, so know what to answer by doing your homework with help from the sites above.
Although also hitech-oriented (sorry, the Internet does tilt that way often), this article on negotiation tips is an easy read and you'll see that by far most of the tips are still useful for your non-hitech profession as well.
Otherwise, if you have some paralegal or administrative experience in Israel or anything else to add for Chani, please share your knowledge and advice in the comments below.
