Just got a job offer (client side), and I think I’m worth at least a little more than the offer. How do I not psych myself out of trying to negotiate for ~$5k more? Afraid they’ll change their minds.

A client based in Japan had sent us a list of some Japanese texts and their English translations at our request which we needed. SM: Copy all the Japanese texts and their translations from document that client sent into a new document and send it back to client (to whom it came from) and ask them if they are correct. Me: Why are we doing that? SM: Just to ensure that we have validation in an email that client sent these translations to us. Me: Facepalm 🤦🏻‍♂️
