I’m also in tech, but I don’t think this is tech-specific. Always give them a set number or range that is higher than what you would accept (ex if your target is 70k, then tell then 75k is the fair compensation you’re looking for, or 75-80k.) It may feel weird to ask for so much money, but that’s how you start so you can “negotiate down” to your target offer. If they’re not willing to meet you at your target compensation, there are other things like equity, PTO, continued education, bonuses, etc that you can also discuss to round out a fair compensation for the role. Feel free to dm me if you have more questions!

yep!

Along with the range also highlight your accomplishments an example is on project X we came in under budget and delivered the product 3 weeks earlier than expected. Assuming you managed the project and if not what and how your contribution played a role. Feels weird to state your accomplishments but you are giving facts to base your request for more money.

I’d never give a range—what’s the point? All you’re doing is telling them you’d accept the lower end.

Got it. Thank you!
