This year I was studying Computer Science as a student, and today I got my first job offer. However the remuneration that the company offers me seems a bit low. Different friends that have just graduated the same degree as me had offers with higher salary too. I tried to bring this up to my interview but the boss said that he knew what the wage is.
Last year I did an internship in an other company. It went incredibly well and the boss of this company wanted to hire me but I declined because I wanted to continue my studies.
Since I have no other professional reference, may I ask my old boss how much he would be ready to paid me (with my new degree)? If yes, how could I ask it?
In response to the comment of Joe : I'm not open to a position with my old company because it's location is no longer suitable.
