Public sector $

I would like to find out the starting salary for a particular graduate program within a Victorian (Australia) statutory body, and how it compares to private sector salaries. I have been able to find Federal government pay classifications but not the Victorian ones, but I believe they should be available somewhere. Unfortunately, Google has not been helpful. Can someone enlighten?

Real World Salary Negotiation - How do you do it?

Salary negotiation - how to do it? I know that, in theory, you're supposed to get them to talk first. Does that really work? How do you do that without coming off like a jerk? Nowadays, the salary question starts in the first email. I generally deflect this question pretty well, but in the interview when they ask "What salary range are you looking for?" I run out of things to say. How do you answer this question? Give me specific phrases I can use. Based on an earlier AskMe threads, the Noel Smith Wenkle approach works well. On the other hand...

Third Party Information

Recently I scheduled an interview for a permanent position by directly applying through the employer's website. In searching more job postings I've found a third party recruiter listing the same job at $X per hour pay (this one as a 6 month term position with option for permanent at the end). I know nothing about 3rd party recruiters and how their fees work; I've just generally heard that temp to permanent regularly get paid less than direct hires. Is it possible to roughly estimate the value of the position per hour if hired without the recruiter's assistance? [more inside]

Unemployment Benefits and Turning Down a Job Offer

My state's unemployment regulations have a section indicating that turning down a job offer is grounds for terminating benefits. Given that at this point, I'm not being asked to provide them with any data as to whom I'm applying, and given the extraordinarily large number of people on the unemployment rolls, am I correct in saying that turning down an offer really has little practical chance of getting back to them?

going from salary to hourly without benefits... should i ask employer for a higher wage?

going from salary to hourly without benefits... do I have a choice? should i ask for a higher wage?my firm is really slow, so my employers are changing me from salary to hourly... basically, as work comes in, i will get paid for the hours i bill. they are also eliminating my benefits package (heath/dental/vision/401k). i am not sure what my workload will be like, but i was typically working 40 hours/week and might be working less than 20.
