Salary Negotiations

Salary negotiation is one area of the job hunt in which I have failed miserably.

Many years ago, I was interviewing for an employment opportunity that I was very qualified for in both education and experience. The ad had listed a salary range for the position, with the upper part of the range being more in line with what I was hoping to receive for a salary.

The interviews went well, and then it came down to the job offer. The salary that the hiring manager came to me with was at the bottom of the range. Instead of negotiating for a higher salary, I just took what was presented because I wanted the job.

Now that was stupid of me.
