    Generally, once an HR person tells you a $, he/she has the option to go 10% higher or 10% lower. This is different in different careers, but as one general rule, generally this is true. So if they give you a starting salary of $50K, you should be able to realistically request up to $55K without a higher level person getting involved. How do you negotiate that extra $5K? That would be a good topic by itself.

    Always try to get the other person to say a number first. This gives you an idea of the range. People that jump the gun and immediately say a $ can be lowballing themselves. Just a mistake of $5K-$10K in your first year of work can translate to $100Ks of lost wages since you started lower than you should have.

    Also, if anyone has questions about interviewing - this would be a great time. I've had a few questions emailed to me about salary negotiation. A few key pointers: Generally it is not brought up until the last interview or just before you are ready to sign. You should do your research on sites like salary.com to see what is the avgrage salary for that role and in your geographic area. Salaries in NY are are different from KS.
