Is it possible to negotiate a higher salary for a grant-funded position?
I have been interviewing for a grant-funded position in my local city government.
It would be a great "foot in the door," but it pays about $10-$15k less than other jobs I have been interviewing for/have received offers from recently.
The original listing for the job stated a salary range (below my expectations, but I figured I would try), but also stated "salary is commensurate with experience." Would a hiring manager get annoyed that I am asking for more? Should I not even try and withdraw my application? Thank you!
