HR consultant Otis Letsoalo advises that job seekers should conduct research on the market rate salary offered for their position.

Salary negotiations can be a tricky part of the recruitment process.

Human resources (HR) consultant Otis Letsoalo says companies offer remuneration packages based on a candidate's skills, expertise and experience.

He says a job package is determined by the level of the job category, the person's skills and the requirements of the job.

When an employer writes a letter of offer to a suitably qualified candidate, they often ask for the person's payslip.

According to Letsoalo, submitting a payslip does not disadvantage a prospective employee, but can instead help a candidate negotiate for benefits.

Letsoalo says candidates are also able to ask for a dummy payslip before accepting a job.

He advises that job seekers should conduct research on the market rate salary offered for their position.

When you apply for a position, you have to take into account what a company is offering and if you fall within that range.

Salaries are regulated by the company's policies and procedures.

In most cases during interviews, panelists never ask you how much you are looking for.

I would advise job seekers to make their payslips available if the prospective employers requires one. It doesn't disadvantage you.

Letsoalo explains that Cost to Company (CTC) describes the total amount of expenses a company spends on an employee each year.

This may include medical aid, petrol or cell phone costs and other benefits.

Many job applicants find CTC misleading and often confuse it with their take-home income.
