*** Salary question:

Hi Ned,

In response to the question about “How do I negotiate a salary that is competitive” –

Salary is not, and should not, be the only consideration. I found a good way to tackle this question is to include a 33% benefit premium on top of wages.

So if your expected pay range is $50,000 – $60,000, saying a “a wage and benefit package in the $65,000 – $80,000 range” would be appropriate.

Of course you can always increase the high-end, but be reasonable based on your knowledge of the benefit package in place. This might yield more in wages, but might alienate an employer into thinking you don't have a good sense of the marketplace. Negotiating for benefits also shows the employer that you understand the value of benefits and their cost to the employer. By including benefits in your opening

offer, the employer is forced to disclose the value of benefits you would receive. Of course, to the extent you undervalue benefits, the employer will overvalue them.

Other considerations when negotiating wages and benefits –

• Will you have an office (with access to supplies) or will you be working from home and paying for your own printer, computer etc.?

• Does company's medical benefit plan cover dependants – or is there additional cost?

• What are the premiums, out-of-pocket, and deductibles?

• Dental plan? HMO or PPO?

• Assess your near/medium term medical needs – starting a family? Serious health issues? Elective surgery?

• Is there a 401(k) match – what percent?

• Is there a defined benefit plan? Most employers are shifting away from these because they are more expensive (generally).

• Commute – is there a high cost to commuting

• Cost of living – as expressed in the initial question – can you afford to live in the area on the salary range you are seeking?

• Bonus, raises, other salary increases – Does the company offer an annual review and base pay increases on that review?

When you factor in all of these benefits – you will have a better idea of your starting point for negotiation.

A 33% premium is a medium range. Some companies offer up to a 45% premium benefit package, but may offer lower salaries. Conversely, a company may offer a higher salary but lower benefits.

Ned,

I read that Craig's list has become a haven for scam jobs. “Stock traders,

posing as employees of a made-up Latvian brokerage firm, appear to have

stolen personal information from individuals who thought they were

applying for a job through the popular classifieds website, Craigslist

(www.craigslist.org).”

I do not know if the American U. job fits this but certainly does not real to

me. I looked at the AU web site and could not find that job.

*** From Jim Brumm:

Ned … This is a job posting with comments .. comments I thought members of the group still on active duty, or recently so, could respond to. Jim Brumm

This was posted on JournalismJobs.com Sunday:

Landmark Military Newspapers of North Carolina, Inc. proud to be selected the new publishers of The Paraglide, the authorized military newspaper for Fort Bragg, seeks qualified applicants. We are a unit of The Landmark Military Media group of The Virginian-Pilot Media Companies. We are establishing a local office in Fayetteville, NC and are accepting applications and resumes for the following positions.

41.) Managing Editor, The Paraglide, Landmark Military Newspapers of North Carolina, Fayetteville, NC

42.) Photojournalist, The Paraglide, Landmark Military Newspapers of North Carolina, Fayetteville, NC

43.) News Design/Layout Editor, The Paraglide, Landmark Military Newspapers of North Carolina, Fayetteville, NC

(The full announcement can be seen at http://www.journalismjobs.com/Job_Listing.cfm?JobID=941020.)

According to the latest Paraglide, the paper was published by the PAO office with an off-base printer through this past week. The latest issue has nothing about the pending change; but four of the nine editorial positions were vacant, so somebody must have known something.

Some questions that come to mind: Is this type of abrupt switch normal these days? Do the other five have any chance of keeping their jobs?

There's no sign of retention from the positions Landmark is trying to fill; but putting out next week's paper cold without the old staff seems rather daunting.

By the end of this week some 16 journalists will be available up the road in Raleigh. The SPJ website reported Thursday folks at The News & Observer were told about the cuts last Monday, along with news that the Raleigh newspaper will consolidate coverage with The Charlotte Observer. The cuts are in addition to buyouts earlier this year.

*** Mark Sofman sends this week’s alternative selection, because the fix is in:

Based on geographic proximity, not to mention our ages, you and I are out of luck, Ned.
