What salary can I expect if I don't have any work experience?

When you're working, it's normal to expect to get paid. That's why it's okay to tell a temp consultant what you'd like to earn. But what salary can you expect if you don't have any work experience yet?

Your employer can't just pay you any salary they want. That's why there's such a thing as scales. These are fixed wage scales in which the minimum wage per sector is stated. In those scales you can also see how your salary can evolve. In some scales the salary evolves with your experience, so you'll earn a bit more with every year you work. In other scales the salary is based on your job title and the tasks you perform.
