I've had good experiences giving them a flexible range. I've definitely turned down interesting-sounding opportunities because the pay was significantly less than I was expecting.

Hi Maureen, give them a range and tell them it's negotiable and you are open to discuss the salary.

I agree with the comments above: I think it's important to give them a range of 10K. Don't go below a number you wouldn't be comfortable with making, even if you need the job. There are plenty of opportunities out there and I'm sure you will find someone who will pay you what you deserve. I like to say: I'm looking for something in the range of x and y. It sounds like you know what you want, but that you're flexible. Good luck!

No, that sounds almost confrontational. You also don’t want them in the position of offering too little money and being embarrassed. Give a range with a $10k spread, so they have a good sense of what you can accept. I usually say, “I can’t accept less than $X, but I’m looking for something closer to $Y.”

What I do is say it's negotiable but to answer that I would consider (give a range such as upper 50s) to be fair.
