I recently interviewed for a position in a different profession and industry than the one that I am in currently (and had worked in for over 10 years). I think I messed up with the salary requirements and was wondering if its too late to fix it. Because I thought-hey I’ve never worked in this field—I can’t expect what I’m making now (plus I would be going from Big City Salary to Little Town Salary), I gave my salary requirements way too low for myself (about $15k less than I am making now, not including bonuses and bennies). Positive Attitude is Key When Fighting Prejudice Against Older Workers — age discrimination happens. If you are bumping up against the grey ceiling,” here are some of the ways you can empower yourself in your job search. Thank you JG.

I guess I would be a different and unique sort of introvert in many ways. I’m an African male in his 30s currently living in my home country in Central Africa. I make friends easily and have no trouble approaching/making a move on any woman I find attractive. Described by many as very shy and reserved, I wasn’t given a chance when I campaigned to become president of my student government in high school. In my rivals’ and detractors’ eyes, public speaking was expected to be my downfall. Not only did I prove them wrong and campaign effectively within classrooms and in my speech in front of the school, but I won the election with 772 votes, while my rivals trailed 400 and 232 votes respectively. That was one of the major challenges and obstacles I faced in my younger life…trying to make my dream of becoming president of student government come true.
