Salary expectation

I'm on the market and have been asked several times for my salary expectations.

I'm a neo graduate although I do have several years of experience in the IT industry and 6 months in "finance" (see my other thread).

I have a degree in Mass Communication and New Media plus I'm a mother tongue English speaker with native level Italian, fluent Spanish and semi decent French.

I'm presently earning 65 but considering asking 75 or even 80.
Too much? Too little?

Re: Salary expectation

damn.....

I saw that you are working as a hedge-fund manager, if so 65K is not a lot.

I have no formal completed education (never got back to it after I hit the job-market), I have +5 years experience in my field and I earn circa 90K...

I would even go higher than 90K if I were you...

Re: Salary expectation

I'm not actually a manager, I just raise capital for small managers.

Re: Salary expectation

Maybe people could help if they knew what job are you interviewing for?

Re: Salary expectation

I've been asked by a recruiter who wants to know how much I expect in general considering my experience.

The kind of jobs I'm looking for is something to do with online communication in the non-profit area.
