In pittsburgh pa the salary is pretty low, starting in low 80s. Lifestyle all depends on specialty but I can tell you with 7 years experience I work 9-5 with no holidays, on call or weekends and make around 96k a year

Washington DC, great city with so much to do. New grad salary was 90k (low balled in my opinion). Switched hospital systems and bumped to 110k with my current job (there are 4 major hospital systems in the area so lots of opportunity for this). It’s been 2.5 years at this job and just bumped to 121k with the annual cost of living/performance based review. Cost of living is high but if you negotiate well you can make a good living here.

I’d like to be prepared for the initial phone screen convo, which will only last 20-30 minutes.

How can I tactfully still talk to the recruiter about landing closer to 130? Not trying to be greedy, but certainly aiming high!
