They are really interested in my profile. I was interested in the work so I asked the recruiter how much would I be paid and she said 60k. I feel like I'm stuck because it's a really good offer considering my skills and experience but I'm afraid if I start negociating and ask for more, it would be considered rude. Any opinion?

Even further, is this typically considered a positive in the recruitment process when looking for candidates?
