Let's admit it, if you are jobless your bargaining power in terms of salary is getting and getting lesser as time passes by.
Employers will tell you that this is what they can only offer. And they'll use all the reasons in the world to justify why they're offering a lower salary than your expectations.
Employers will try to emphasize your status as being a jobless, and they'll try to offer you the lowest salary they'll think you'll accept.
So now, how can you prevent this from happening?
During the interview when they're trying to corner you as being a jobless, and they're trying to lower your value because you're currently not employed, tell them that even though you're jobless, you still remain active and updated in the field of your profession.
For example, you're already unemployed for 3 or 6 months, and they'll ask what you have done during this time period? What should be your answer?
You can tell them the truth. You tend to your family. You read books. You watch movies, played games, but if any of your answer didn't give you a higher value, you're giving the employer the impression that they can have you at a lower salary rate.
So, instead of telling them only those reasons. You can also add that, you undergo training, seminar, you enroll for a short diploma course, something that makes you competent and your skills improve.
