It’s tough to know exactly what you should ask for without knowing the company, where it’s located, and your experience. One good way to start is to look at what other similar positions pay. If you are new to the industry, you shouldn’t expect to make the same amount as someone with 20+ years of experience, but knowing what the industry standard is can be very helpful. Start here, and then factor in your experience.
