I've missed being around chatting with everyone. Work has been nuts and not in a good way. To that end, I've been searching for a new job. I have an in-person interview for a job next week, one that I would really like to get!
... However. They let me know up front the starting salary that they had in mind and it's much lower than I make now. (They know this because I had to give salary history on the application.) I'd take the job if we could split the difference because it's a lateral move- even a smidge step down, but involves job duties I've never had and really want to fill a gaping hole in my resume.
I'm just thinking ahead here, because I don't want to be offered the job and be caught unawares and unprepared to negotiate.
-- Have any of you successfully negotiated a salary for a new job? This is different to me than negotiating raises with supervisors who know you and know your worth. I've been reading around on job search sites and places like Forbes but it's nice to hear experiences from real people-- and real women at that (you know stats show women don't negotiate enough... ugh).
Thanks in advance. Hope all is well!
