Anyone have tips for asking for more than you think you're worth? Because of the employment market there's a job which is about a 20K jump for me but it's been open for a year so I'm pretty sure I can get something additional out of them. Would it be appropriate to ask for 10K above the jump? Or should I just count my blessings and leverage my ability to underprice other applicants

Are you talking about an internal job or a job somewhere else? Is it a firm or company?

All that being said if you have an offer unless the compensation is lock step I don’t see a reason why you can’t or shouldn’t negotiate for more than the offer.

Always counter 10-15% more than the offer. All they can say is no!
