Default Re: Salary Question - Community Management

Sorry that I don't know the going rate for that position, but a lot can be told from their offer.
- That's probably the low end of the range.
- So they can probably come up a bit, but probably not that much.
- If you said honestly, "I really can't do it for less than $45K" and they really wanted you, they might meet you half way.
- If you said "I really can't do it for less than $49K" in hopes they'd offer you $42K, they'd probably withdraw the offer.
- But if you don't try, then for sure you won't be getting that job (since you're not going to accept their offer).
- You have to be smart (artful vs. artless) about the negotiation. You want to remind them of your desirable qualities, not just ask for more money.
Good luck!
