  • As I understand it, the concept of negotiating for a salary is totally different there. Jobs have a specific salary that is known up front, and you take it or leave it. Not sure what the origin of this difference is.
    • While the company may advertise the sort of salary they are expecting to pay, that is as negotiable as the rest of the contract. On several occasions I have got more out of them. As to why US employers don't advertise salaries, I have no idea. It seems daft to me. Advertising the salary is a great way of getting inappropriate candidates to filter themselves out quickly and easily without having to rely on the opaque rubbish written by HR drones. And both sides benefit. By including the salary, they are more likely to get a small selection of well-suited people to choose from instead of wasting their time fielding enquiries and interviewing people who are too expensive or not good enough.
