I’ve been essentially an intern at this company for a little over 6 months now. I started doing rigging and then after my first initial internship (3mo) ended they moved me over to the more tech arty department.
They’ve recently told me that they want to hire me! Yay! This will be my first full time position ever. Because of this, I’ve never had to do a negotiation before and I’m a little nervous.
We are having the ‘talk’ this week. What should I be asking for in terms of salary?
For some background:
I graduated with a BFA in 2017 and this is my first real position outside of a tiny rigging contract I did on a VR title. I’m in Seattle, currently getting $25/h (which was a huge step up from my minimum wage job I had prior to this). The company is about 70 people and we are launching our first big title early next year.
I feel well loved here. They are letting me pick which team I join (my goal is to end up back in rigging but I also like making art tools in Unreal).
Thanks for any input!
