I have been following the CT advice for my application for a new position and finally after a month long process received an offer. The offer is slightly ($3000 to $5000) lower than what i had been looking for annually. The opportunity does involve a move and I had already factored in a relocation package which they have left open ended to be discussed. They have added a living allowance for the first 3 months in the new location which is about $7500. I guess I am looking to see if I should go back and see if they will come up on the salary, I am ok with the first year as the living allowing and moving allowance bring me well with in my range, but with out knowledge of the annual salary review and compensation process I am nervous that going forward this will create a hardship. Any advice would be appreciated.
