In positive news today – I had a great interview today!
Negative – the starting salary is significantly lower than what I’m what I’m looking for. Like, $20K less than what I made prior to earning my master's degree.
I want to thank the interviewer, reiterate my passion for the job and the organization, but also let them know that for this to continue forward for me, the salary needs to be negotiable. Any suggestions on how I can convey that?
