Thanks Tina. This was useful advice:

When it comes to negotiating salary, Ms. Mason's research indicates that a job candidate asking for $63,500 might receive a counteroffer of $62,000, while the request for $65,000 is more likely to yield a counteroffer of, say, $60,000, as the hiring manager assumes the candidate has thrown out a broad ballpark estimate.

I'm SO glad that I could give something back to you that you could actually use in a practical way!

Yes! Thank you Tina!

Ahhhh!  You're so welcome!
