How I negotiated my full-time offer after an internship.
I interned at a large corporate tech company. After doing a lot of research, the salary range for my position at my current location varies from $40K-$50K. I wanted at least $50K because I think I really proved my worth throughout my internship and think they really need me. If they were going to hire someone else at the upper $45-$50K rate, it would take them at least 4 months to get up to speed. The platforms are all internal and it’s a lot of learning before implementing. Some things I negotiated. 1) My entry-level position is 100% more hands-on compared to the work done by my same position at other companies. 2) The contributions during my internship exceeded expectations and I backed up numbers as to why. 3)This particular role is much more than 50 hours a week and we’re expected to work over the holidays. Conclusion: I just got the written $50K offer and I cannot be more excited about it.
