Eight Factors That Can Affect Your Pay

1. Years of experience

Typically, more experience results in higher pay – up to a point. Similarly, if the position calls for someone with 10 years of experience in a particular occupation, and you don't meet those requirements, you may find yourself on the lower end of the pay scale.

Negotiation tip: Emphasize your years of experience if you have slightly more than what's required; if you have too much experience, you may be overqualified.
