daniello2943yOne third of the average? ;)
tizo5923yI would never recommend saying averages as most employers won't take these numbers seriously. State it as this is what I'm worth.
wesaka4753yIn my case, at the time, when I first interviewed in the company I work now, my soon to be employer asked me how much did I want to earn, it went like:
(Let's establish the average as $)
E: So, how much do you want to earn?
M: Well, answering your question of how much I WANT to earn, the answer would be $$$$.
E: You know that this can't be done hahahaha
M: Well, then I ask YOU, how much you can pay me :)
And that's how it all started. I love my boss
nocgod18633yI said 6k above average, got it.
It's all about how you sell yourself and convince them that you are worth paying this much.
