How do I start salary negotiations after simply agreeing on the phone?

I was offered a job, but do to being just woken up and unsure of myself when the initial call came through, I did not try to negotiate the salary when they told me what it is over the phone. It's a bit under what I wanted and I was wondering, how do I contact them to engage in negotiations? And, once I do, how do I phrase it? I feel like I accidentally already agreed. [more inside]

Navigating simultaneous job offers from competing companies

I received a job offer from company A this morning, and I anticipate a job offer from company B sometime after a final-round interview tomorrow. The companies are direct competitors, and each is aware that I'm in talks with the other for the same type of position. Both companies have good reputations, but it's generally accepted that company B pays more. Questions inside. [more inside]

How to best clarify salary expectations

A friend recently got a job offer, yay! When she spoke with the hiring manager at the time of the initial offer, she was told she'd receive a certain amount of money, with a percentage raise after the first year. But when she received the formal offer letter, the letter specifies only the first year salary, and says nothing about a raise. Should she say something to the hiring manager? Any suggestions on how she might phrase her concerns?
