I'm currently in an internship for the end of my 3rd year in IT engineering studies.
As an intern, I was given a way bigger job than what was announced when I was recruited.
The original job was only to re-code a software, which would justify a really low salary, but in the end I have to recreate a whole project and make it approved by both QA and development team. Plus the software was a total mess no one understood anymore, requiring to analyse it all and document it all.
For those reason, I would like to renegotiate my salary, but as an intern I fear that I won't be taken seriously and won't be able to make my point.
It's legal to renegotiate a salary as an intern in my country, so the problem is not here, it's really about the status of intern which makes me think it would be way harder to negotiate anything, as it's already hard to bring new ideas even though they require me to ("We always did like that!").
How do you renegotiate your salary when you're just an intern?
Not a duplicate of How should I properly approach my boss if I'm feeling underpaid? since it's really more a "I'm an intern I won't be taken seriously" than a "I don't have any negotiation skills" issue, even though I'm not particularly good (more precisely I have no experience in negotiation), I saw some good advice on this very website.
