    I would never recommend saying averages as most employers won't take these numbers seriously. State it as this is what I'm worth.

    In 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

    I said 6k above average, got it.
    It's all about how you sell yourself and convince them that you are worth paying this much.
