Ask for more than you think you are worth.
We often that think if something is cheaper more people will buy, but that is not always true. The price of an iPhone has consistently gone up and more people continue to buy.
The same is true of your salary. Whatever amount you think you are worth, you are probably undervaluing yourself. Ask for more and then negotiate.
And if that employer is not willing to negotiate with you then they may not have the money to support you or it is a sign that you will have a difficult working relationship in the future.
Always be working to increase the value you bring to the table.
