Can someone offer advice? I currently am working in finance and accounting at the big 4, but I really want to go into a different field like PR, communications, HR or project management.

Recommendations on a new spinner suitcase?
Would appreciate suggestions on how to ask for more in an offer letter. I got an offer at the amount that I said was the minimum of what I think I would at least expect, and dug myself into a hole because that's what the the offer came out to be. Just want some ideas on how to better phrase it other than "I was actually hoping for $X." Or "I think a fair salary would instead be $X given my experience." This is for a unique position at a small firm so nobody else has a similar role
