I've often be told I'm short selling myself. So now in a new interview I'm wondering, if I notice that market salary, for someone with my skillset, is x (say 3000), what should I ask for?
I have a tendency to "go along" with people. I really dislike going into a discussion and try to evade all this haggling. However friends have told me I'm stupid that I work now for minimum wage as programmer and I ought to sell myself better.
So is there a rule of the thumb to "start" as a requesting salary? without fear of offending the employer.
