I have a BA in Chemistry and an MA in Educational Technolgy (web design and construction, MS office, desktop publishing, digital photo editing, interactive software). I am leaving the teaching field where I earned 67k per year. I am returning to the analytical chemistry arena or I may see if I can get a job in information technology or possibly an entry level management position. I worked for the last 9 years as a chemistry/physics teacher at the high school level. Previously I worked as an analytical chemist, using bench chemistry, and gas and liquid chromatography for about 4 years. How much salary should I ask for? I am worried about being to greedy and turning off my prospective employers, but I don’t want to sell my self short either.
I just had an interview for a quality control position, which has a salary range of 33k -80k and involves sensory as well as instrumental (liquid chromatography) analysis of food. I told the interviewer I wanted at least 42k. Is this too low?
