There is a job that I'm really interested in, but it would need to pay about $15K more a year. Is it worth applying knowing that I couldn't take it for what they're offering?
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

You could apply and then if offered the job, you could negotiate for a higher salary. It can be tricky since you don't want to price yourself out. Men do it all the time. I've read that women have difficulty asserting themselves when it comes to being paid what they feel they're worth.

Are there any cons to applying? Maybe you'll have to waste some vacation time for interviews, but that's the only down side u see. Other than that you either don't get offered the job (same outcome as not applying), you get an offer you need to refuse for salary and they keep your name for future jobs, or you get an offer and a good salary and take it.

If they advertised the salary range, I probably wouldn't bother unless the job is one that will be tough to fill and you have skills that are hard to find. It also depends on how much $15k is in relation to the salary offered. If they're offering 20% less that what you need, you probably aren't going to be able to negotiate enough to get what you need. On the other hand, if it's within 10-15%, you might have a shot.

After I sent it it, I was thinking that if it was a $200K/year job, $15K not such an issue. We're looking about 20-25% more then they are offering, so probably not gonna fly!
