I had a phone interview today and one of the questions asked was regardig salary. As I am unfamiliar with the salary rates in the area and all of my research has been inconclusive, I threw out a number which may have been WAY too low. It was a bad habit from being in a bad job market where they always low ball you. I did say that I was unfamiliar with the market and I wanted something competitive, but I did screw myself up.
On a good note, I am getting a second call from them.
