If you accept too quickly, without any negotiation, you may realize later that there were details you weren’t aware of; this can lead to feelings of resentment, which is a bad situation for employee and employer alike. You have shown your employer an average proficiency and average performance. Never say you need to discuss it with your spouse—you want to appear confident and capable of making a decision on your own. If you don’t like the question, don’t assume the worst. Ultimately, your satisfaction hinges less on getting the negotiation right and more on getting the job right. Then you’ll have an offer that’s not much better and a negotiating partner who thinks her job is done. For example, a job paying $35,000 a year may have a salary range between $31,500 and $38,500. If the employer is unable to negotiate, you must then decide if you are still willing to accept their offer. Don’t underestimate the importance of liability.
