My doormat and pickme way in dating are gone thanks to FDS but I find that that low self esteem is still hanging in my career life lmao. I’m applying for a remote part time(20h/week) travel consultant/executive assistant(the title is executive assistant but duties looks a lot like travel consultant) for a women owned travel tour agency. And they’re asking what is your rate as opposed to saying what their rate is. My first thought was to literally type a low number because I’m scared but I’m not gonna do that anymore. wondering if anyone has been in this situation? Initially I was gonna low ball $15 but I think maybe $18 would be better. There’s also opportunities to grow and it’s still a small number of employees there. $20 would be great but I feel like it might be too much for what they want. I’m thinking along the line of “my rate is $18 but I am open for further discussion”.
