Hi everyone! Excited to be posting for the first time here! I just got my first job offer in Washington DC as a social media content producer. It’s entry level and I’m fresh out of school (just graduated last month!) Any tips for negotiating salary and benefits? How can I tell if I’m being low balled? Does anyone know a number I should ask for this position? Thanks so much for the help!

A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?

I’m still at my current company/role, I’m just not happy at all so looking to find something/someplace new.
