Hi All,
I have very good opportunity as a permanent J2EE developer. Few days before in a preliminary interview when I was asked about the salary range...I gave very low range (approx. 45K). I have approx. 2 years of experience in java/J2EE. This company is very respectable and frankly I'm been waiting for this opportunity from long time...I wouldn't have worried much even if they would have paid me small amt. But now I think my interview went well and I believe ball is in my court. I just want to make sure that whenever I'm negotiating salary it should be in accordance to the current job market. As it is permanent position this salary range is going to affect me for long term. Could you please post as to what range I should try negotiating? For your additional info:
1. Place is not a big city like NY, Chicago etc
2. I'll have to drive an hour to go and again an hour to come back.
3. Sometimes I would be told to carry pagers
4. Sometimes I would be told to stay late

Please let me know your opinions :roll:
