Always negotiate your salary before you accept a full-time job. It might feel awkward, but you know what feels worse? Working hard in the same job 18 months later and wishing you had. Accepting the first offer without a (polite) fight is a disservice to yourself. Because, no matter how hard you work, budgets change, managers change and promises get broken. You can’t guarantee you’ll be given a pay rise, but you can ensure your salary is the best it can be from the beginning. Go get it.
