I am negotiating my salary as an entry level transportation planner with a private consulting firm in the SF Bay Area. I just graduated with a Masters in City Planning in May (from an Ivy League school, if that matters). I have 5 years of work experience prior to getting my masters (most of which is unrelated to planning, however).
I think their offer may be on the low side, so I would like to have a number (based in reality, of course) that I can counter with.
Any ideas on what salary range I should ask for based on my experience above?
