GCD wants to hire me for known agency in LA. I have a meeting with recruiter to talk salary next Monday... how high should I aim? Open to negotiating but not sure how high to ask for initially.

50-60 is pretty standard. Less if it includes overtime. Also hard to negotiate for a jr role, a lot of times it’s just like take it or leave it. But still good practice to try!

If it includes overtime, the base could be a lot lower, like 35k.

Don’t negotiate. Just ask for a reasonable amount on the higher end of the spectrum. 60-65, settle for 60

Ask for 65. That's not unheard of in LA for a junior writer. It's on the high end, but it's not on the "I have no clue how any of this works" end. Depending on who you're dealing with, they'll give you 65 and make you feel good about yourself. Or they'll knock you down to 60 as a power move to remind you of your place on the bottom rung.

Ask for the higher end salary. When they say no, see if they’ll give you a couple extra vacation days as consolation

Additional details: probably for a junior position, and I have summer experience at 3 known agencies.

The bigger the shop, the lower it will probably be.

Intern, at your level, you don’t negotiate. They’re gonna make and offer, the basic salary, and you’ll take it.

That’s bad advice. Definitely negotiate. Ask for their budget for the role then ask for 5k more than that. You should be around 60-65.

160-180 sounds about right

Well shoot maybe I’m applying at the wrong place. I’ve got a couple good kidneys if you got any buyers.

Depends on how much real work/experience is in your book. For a junior I’ve only heard of starting at 50-60k.
