Hi,
I want an advice. I want to know that it will look nice for a freshmen(Fresher) to ask for a more money for job at the time
of interview if HR would ask him that "This is your package. Is it fine?"
If i will tell him that No it's too small,please increase it, as am a qualifed,certified,Blah blah.. developer . Does it looks nice?
And also what should be answer to the question for a fresher: "What are your expectations?" (Money Expectations).
I feel very shy to ask for more money at the time of interview.
I fear that Hr would think that i am a really greedy guy,then they will not going to hire me,never.
Please share your opinions. Help me. I am needy.

Thanks
John

It probably depends on the region and company. In a large company, the offer might be set for all freshers. Whereas if a company only has one position, they are probably more open to negotiation. I didn't negotiate my first job offer. I don't know if I could have.

But you are NOT a qualified certified developer ! So how would you say that , since you are a fresher ?

If you are a fresher, no company in India would give you an option to negotiate, at least in India when you are a fresher and you have so many freshers in the market trying to get a break.

All this is based on Indian market & jobs. I hope that is your real name, else all this means nothing if you are not from India.
Precisely that is why we stress on registering with our REAL names.

Yes I belong to a naive people category.
Humm..I have to think. IMHO you are somewhat correct. Let's see.

I think it doesn't matter because there are few questions that people want to ask being anonymous.
Like some sensitive matter(regarding their job,their boss,his boss's beautiful daughter and blah blah ).
And for questions those are related to technology or some innovation, they are proud to show it off by their real name.
P.S.-Yes I am from India and This is my real name.
Thanks once again.

Actually, I disagree. It is these "sensitive matter" topics that stress an even higher need to use REAL names. With real names, people are more likely to be professional -- and hence, handle these sensitive topics with care, or not discuss it at all. We are all professionals after all.

Any further discussion of the naming policy should take place in the ranch office forum.
