Are non-negotiable salaries really non-negotiable?
I’m currently applying to entry level positions in higher education. Job titles include Research Assistant, Program Assistant, and Scholarship Coordinator. Many of these opportunities are grant funded, and quite a few of the applications I come across state that the salary is non-negotiable. Is this really true when included in applications? I understand the field I’m trying to go into, and I understand grant funding. Just wondering if this is actually true, including for positions that aren’t grant funded but are non-negotiable. I’ve been out of college for a few years but am still new at seeking career work and knowing how certain things work.
