I have been offered a new position with an agency that seems pretty amazing. The downside is that the starting salary is below what I have made over the last year.
I will receive an increase once I receive a professional license. But that could be a ways away. And even with licensure, the increase in salary would still not meet what I’m making now.
The benefits of the agency, and the agency itself are of value. However, I don’t want to start a new job that will cause a financial hardship right away for me and my kiddos.
The agency loves me and was impressed by my interview - to the point that they have immediate feedback to the hiring
manager about extending an offer ASAP. I hope that bodes well for me in negotiating a higher salary.
Anyone have suggestions for negotiating a starting salary?
