Letter Of Demand
What I mean is show the hiring manager how much you understand about her and her needs. You re in a similar industry after all. Point out the parallels - explicitly. "Last year we were so overworked four accountants took early retirement. How about your staff?" After you ve established some identification with the recruiter show her what you can do for her. "Well while we couldn t stop them from leaving I could do this... and a surprising thing happened. Of course we d need to talk about how that translates from government to a private firm." Now you re the trusted advisor instead of one more applicant begging for a job.
Since you have no way of telling how exactly the employer will react with a low or high salary requirement request make sure that you are on the safe track. One way is to simply provide in that requirement that your answer will be available upon request. This will at least make the issue of deciding upon the salary requirement at a later date. It can keep your chances of getting the job interview safe. At least even if you have the high salary requirement request in mind you can provide this right after being able to establish that you best qualify for the position. You can also take some time to do research on the company you are applying for.
