Heyo, Currently I'm working as a software developer intern. The salary is alright, and I'm working 40 hours a week.
I'm going to be offered a full time role. However, I've still got a year of college left. The company is willing to extend the internship so I can work part time during the school year before going full time.
My question is, should I try negotiating my salary when transitioning to part time work as a student?
My current salary as an intern is significantly less than what a full time equivalent makes - and I'm worried that not negotiating a raise now might kneecap my ability to negotiate when I'm hired full time. I also genuinely believe that I deserve to earn more, even as a part time employee.
I should note that notable raises when going from intern to full time are normal at this company.
Tl;dr: transitioning from Intern to part time (While a student) and then eventually full time. Should I try to negotiate a raise now?
