I’m considering a new career opportunity and I want to ask for 60k base salary (avg in my area is 69k with related degree). I don’t have a degree so I’m not sure if I’m asking too much, but I’m also not super unhappy with my current job making 40k. Should I just shoot high? Worst case scenario I’m where I started

If you have the experience do not worry about the degree...ask for what you need...aim high and have an idea of the lowest that you are willing to accept but do not disclose this number until you are confident with the offer. Never undersell yourself.

Do not undersell yourself. Regardless of a degree, if you can do the work well that’s the only thing that matters.
