I am currently receiving a job offer from sustainable consulting company.
When I had a call with HR, they asked me my last sallary for full time employment which is X (in 2018). They asked me if I am okay with that, initially I said okay. But before the final round interview, I asked them to consider myself for higher position/job title. Now they already gave me formal offer. The sallary is 1.2X in the position that I initially applied. After 3 years doing masters and involved in several projects. I expect that my sallary will be higher than that. My questions
1. Is it fair that offer me only 20% Higher compared to pre-master ? considering my masters is in relevant field.
2. Now I want to negotiate, at least 10-15% higher, How can I tell them in elegant way and make them accept it ?
Thank you for always helping us
