here, and I surprisingly got an offer for one and I've progressed to the final stage of the interview process for the other!! I'm being presumptuous to say that I have a good feeling (I always have good feelings…) that I might get it!!! I honestly didn't think I'd get this far and during the salary range question, I gave a number (that at the time) was about 5-7k above my old salary, yet now I've done research for the position, the number I asked is about 15k below the average. The other offer has offered a 2k increase on my old salary, so it makes me more invested in this current opportunity.
So I'm just asking if it would be an asshole thing / ruin my chances to throw out a higher number (like 5k more than I asked for) at the next interview if asked, or hope that they recognize the lowball I threw out and try to offer something better. It's a little presumptuous, but this is progressing so quickly that I'd like to get on top of things now just in case. Thanks in advance!
