I was in e-comm for 5 years before making the shift to a SaaS company. 3 months ago, I started a role in client outreach/ admin as a part-time contractor (making $30/hr) in BC, Canada.
Does moving from that to $45,000 annually (2 weeks vacay, no benefits; works out to be $23/hr) seem fair? It's over the published livable wage but I'd like to make more than that. I'd like to believe I provide more value than that but the more I think about it, the more imposter syndrome sets in.
It should be all business but I understand that money is tight in the company right now and my boss seems like a genuine person. I think I'd like to be making at least $50,000 annually (with benefits) to start.
How would you recommend negotiating this?
Thanks in advance!
