    Don't sell yourself short. Ask for what you and your skills are worth. Compare whats on offer with other similar jobs in the area and ask for a suitable salary accordingly. If you don't ask you wont get.

    In my cases both schools got a bargain
    i think that's important isn't it ? being able to judge your own worth to an organisation. If you've got the experience, technical skills, and are comfortable enough in your existing position, to not worry about not getting an offer......then in my mind it would make sense to play hard ball on salary.

    Yes, maybe but in his case he doesn't have very much experience so I don't think he has a lot to bargain with re salary

    I would like to thank you all for your comments (keep 'em coming though).

    Job hunt is getting me down a little but hopefully things will change around eventually

    @Will: Will give you a call tomorrow if that's ok

    Regards
