Principally what the title says. I had my first interview for an inside place which might be a promotion for me if I get it. Throughout the first interview, the individual interviewing me advised me the anticipated wage vary and I advised him what I wish to be paid primarily based on my years of expertise and {qualifications}. He then mentioned that every one inside candidates undergo a “comparability course of” the place somebody in HR (who won’t ever meet or interview me, will solely see my resume) will evaluate my {qualifications} to different folks within the firm with the identical title/place and that may decide my wage. He then mentioned that no matter wage they put within the provide letter (if I obtain one) is the “finest the corporate can do”.

So I’ve a couple of questions.

  1. Why would exterior candidates get to barter wage however inside candidates can’t?

  2. Has anybody ever heard of this ridiculous “comparability” factor?

  3. Ought to I nonetheless attempt to negotiate if the wage given isn’t what I would like?

Thanks upfront for any recommendation!
