After being accepted on OfferZen, your Talent Advisor will help you set your expected salary. This amount will be visible on your profile, and companies will reach out with upfront salary info for roles — so you can decide whether it fits your needs.

It’s really important that you set an expected salary you would seriously consider accepting, and which you can justify based on your experience. To help you do this, your Talent Advisor will ask you questions around your current and expected salary.

Our Talent Advisors use data-driven sources to advise you on salary. This includes using a salary calculator and checking the current market demand for your skills.

The salary amount is non-binding and final offers are negotiable with companies during interviews. That said, companies have the expectation that you’ve thought carefully about the amount on your profile and that you’d be willing to accept that salary. Therefore, have good reasons for negotiation to back you up before starting that conversation.
