Tekna’s salary recommendations: This is what your starting salary should be in 2023
Are you a recent graduate and about to negotiate your first salary? This is what you should ask for according to Tekna’s recommendations on starting salaries for 2023.
The starting salary in your first job after getting your degree might be the most difficult to negotiate during your entire career. This is because you don’t have a lot of work experience to use as a bargaining chip. For many graduates the most important thing is to just get their foot in the door of the labor market. And a lot of them don’t know what kind of salary they can request of a new employer, either.
It is important to enter the labor market on the right starting salary. So in order to get you off to a good start on your career, Tekna prepares annual salary recommendations for you and other recent graduates who want to work in the private sector.
