I making a lateralish career move. The new position has a different pay scale than my current position of about $1 per hour. I know I have an offer, because HR guy emailed me saying he had an offer and to please call him.
How exactly should this conversation go? I'm worried they aren't going to offer me the raise I deserve for being awesome.
I was planning to say something like, " I'm super excited that you want me in this position but I was really hoping for more money."
My husband said I shouldn't say hoping. Can you help me?
