I hate it when companies list the salary on offer as "Competitive" rather than an actual value.

Thats fine for confident dudes who walk into the interview, ask for £80k and work down from there.

But for the rest of us, particularly women and minorities ( who are less confident in their worth ), get screwed over by asking for much less than a company is willing to pay. Its just unequal pay all over again.


This comes after I asked for £XXk in an interview yesterday, and then regretted it today when I think about how massive the company is and how they'd probably pay a lot more.

The £XXk is already £10l higher than my current salary, I have no idea what I'm worth.

@s why are you still using Roman numerals in the UK? Is the regression via Brexit this harsh?
