Hey everybody. I will tell about my experience and my path if I get an actual offer(guys from the company said they are gonna decide next week). For now, I just want to ask a question.
I put my resume online a week or two ago and I didn’t have much of invitations for an interview. I only applied for around 6-7 jobs, that I suggested interesting and suitable for junior dev.
So, this interview, it went better than the previous one that I had around 2 months ago. Definitely better. I’ve shown better expertise in JS and, in general, I asked questions and conversed.
The problem is that before the interview I was talking to the HR manager. We were talking slow and smooth and I felt relaxed and then BOOM… she asked about the desired salary. I lost it and called a number that is 15-20% lower than medium junior salary in my town. I don’t know why I did this. Maybe it was a psychotic break. Maybe I am just destined to be an idiot. Anyway, as I said, the interview went good and I don’t know what to do if they make me an offer with a salary lower than even medium one just because I called a wrong number. Should I negotiate? Or just accept the offer and then, after a few months ask for a raise? All that considering the fact that I don’t have many options on the job market of my city.
Thanks for reading!
