This question already has an answer here:
I'm a junior developer interviewing for a role that requires a few more years experience than I have (mid level). So far I have been doing well on coding challenges and interviews thus far and I have a meeting soon to discuss salary. However the original job range was x + 30k to x + 60k more than someone of my experience should be making, where x is what I should be making.
I don't know that I even feel comfortable asking for x + 30k because for any other employer I might ask for x + 10k at maximum. However at the same time if I ask for a low amount (like x + 10k) the employer might see me as a non worthwhile candidate because they might perceive my low amount for me not thinking I can do the job.
The most important thing for me is that I get this job, what salary should I ask for considering my lack of years of experience and that I shouldn't have the employer perceive me as a weak candidate because of salary?
Edit on why this is not a duplicate of: How can I determine a reasonable salary to ask for?
I don't believe this is a duplicate as that question requests how to calculate a salary the OP should reasonably ask for based on statistics and tools. While my question asks: given that I have already have a reasonable salary, but my potential employer is offering more than that amount, what is the best course of action (choosing my reasonable salary or the employer's generous range) with the most important thing being that I get the position.
