How much should I ask for?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Dec 08, 2014 2:51 pm

I have an interview as an intern/summer associate position for a private insurance company. I was asked about my salary expectations and basically said that I'm not sure. I will be asked again during the interview. I'm a lower T14 2L that has a market paying position for half of my summer. What would you ask for? Is $20/hour reasonable?

That seems reasonable, I worked during 2L summer for a regional office, in the Midwest, of a large pharmaceutical company who had a small legal department at that location and was paid $18/hr.

OP Here. Thanks for the advice.

I think I'm going to ask for $25-$30 and accept $20-$25.
