I had apply to do my thesis project to a start-up company.
In the interview:
Company: -How much money do you expect for this project?
Me: -I know that this is not a full job so I don't expect a full salary. If you believe at the end of the interviews that you will have with other candidates that I am the most suitable guy for the project we can discuss that part. It is not the most important thing for me. The most important thing for me is to finish my thesis until August so I will be able to search for a job.
After 10 days they send me an email that I am the suitable guy. I want to ask them if they are offering any (even small) monthly salary or compensation for the position. It was my first interview and it will be my first job, is there any polite way to discuss/ask that issue?
