Setting a salary goal is an important factor when entering into the Bodyguard industry; analyze how much money you require per year and know what the current salary range is for the Bodyguard position you are interviewing for.
Your military, law enforcement, personal security detachment or private sector background experience and strength that you bring to the Bodyguard position will be a great factor in your salary negotiation. Your strengths should include providing consistent thoughtful Bodyguard effort; this way you’ll be paid good money for the value you provide.
You have invested Bodyguard training and have hard-earned Bodyguard experience, now you should start preparing for a great salary from your Bodyguard career. The best scenario would be that you get your asking price or more (benefits, medical, vacation, etc.). Some questions the interviewer may ask in regards to compensation include:
• What salary are you looking for in the job at (insert company name)?
• What package are you looking for in the job at (insert company name)?
Most of the time Bodyguard positions are a fixed package and not open to salary negotiations. However, if the position is open to salary negotiations here are some recommendations:
Never attempt salary negotiations before they actually offer you the position. Stay away from talking about the BG salary package until as late in the hiring process as possible.
When it is time to bring up your BG salary expectations know the smallest salary package that you are willing to accept and a perfect, maximum amount you’d be happy to accept. Do not give out the figures you have in mind. Make sure the interviewer provides the salary figure first, before you start negotiations.
