I recently moved from California to Pennsylvania and am job searching and my resume is all California. I was on a call with a recruiter for a remote job and they assumed I still lived in CA. When discussing salary, the range I gave them they said was fine since I live in CA and I had to tell them that I live in PA now. He did some calculations and then quoted me a number that was $25k/yr less for the same job. How much leverage do you think I have to negotiate back up to that original figure?

Would love to hear different tactics but here’s how I’d position myself: I understand there’s a cost of living adjustment. However, Just because I relocated to PA doesn’t mean I’m all of a sudden $25K less valuable. I bring XYZ (experience, expertise, value, etc) to the company, and I think $xxK is a fair compensation.
They obviously are willing to pay someone $25K more so be prepared to walk away if they don’t at least meet you half way (or whatever you think would be fair)

That’s helpful to know, thank you

A lot of companies have higher pay for California and New York, but not other places. It might be their policy. If it’s not their policy, look up the cost of living difference between the 2 places and find out if that seems fair or not. If the cost of living is 25% less where you live now, then it seems fair. If it’s close to the same cost of living, then I think you have leverage.

Thank you! The cost of living is lower than the Bay Area for sure but not by that much and with recent inflation it has jumped a lot.

I'm having the opposite problem. I'm in California applying to remote roles in other states and they don't have an adjustment for COL. I had to explain to a recruiter this morning that state tax alone is 13%, then add the cost of housing, gas, goods and services, local taxes, etc. Like another fish mentioned, do the math and see if what they're offering is comparable for your new area.

Hi fishes, during my discussion with HR, they mentioned that bonus (approx 25% of base salary) is part of PwC salary structure.

However if I don't get bonus, my salary will be much lower. Does PwC provide bonus details in offer letter? If not, can I renegotiate the initial offer? PwC PwC India

Which strategy is better?

#1 - The first tactic I learned for salary negotiation is to give them a # and act like you will walk away if it's not met. I forget the details, but something like even if they give you a lower #, you still stick to your #.

#2 - You can also give them a # and they may come back with a lower # and you can take it or leave it.

#3 - A new coach told me about giving a range. He said if you give them a #, they may flat out say no.

Can't they say no to any of these?

Is this pretty typical? I have been recruited to my last several roles and this is my first time ever interviewing with multiple companies at once.

I work at a privately insured addiction treatment facility. My hourly wage is $20/hr. I wanted to move up in position with this company but they already had someone in that position currently. I went to them with a solution that would resolve a couple issues within the current staff and put me into a higher position/supervisor role. They agreed that having me in this role would solve the issues and also that I would be able to handle the responsibility that comes with it. They only gave me $2/hr

So I have a question I'm new to the site and have been following post made but was wondering whats a good relocating package or things to ask for when moving for work ? All advice welcome.
