    I just finished my third internship (12 weeks) with Company X. They’re a startup of about 30 people. Company culture is amazing, work is remote, I’ve learned and taken on a lot while there, I’ve loved my bosses, and they shuttled me to two conferences across the country, paid for all expenses, and I’ve met them all in person, so they clearly value me. They sent me the offer today for 45k base + equal profit sharing (according to them, an extra 5-10k a year) + health insurance with dental and vision + Macbook laptop + unlimited PTO. Position is for a Growth Marketing Associate. I told them I was excited about the offer but I’d want the weekend to think on the contract. As an intern I currently make $3200/month on a contract basis, or 41,600 before taxes. 60k is ideal for me, but I’d settle for 50k. Is this too crazy to ask for? About me: I graduated from Cornell University this May with a B.A. in History and a 3.6 GPA. I’m a 23-year-old Hispanic female. I’ve worked in the email marketing and outreach space remotely for a couple years part-time while in college and have done a couple internships. During these past 12 weeks, I’ve created the groundwork for our account-based marketing campaigns leading off into new industries we’re targeting and oversee the entire project. Cold lead generation, copy work, multi-touch email sequences pitching different value props to cold leads, Facebook and Google ad campaigns targeted towards these leads, etc. I get some help here and there from my bosses but this is largely my project. In college, I ran weekly email blasts for a small eCommerce company and generated tens of thousands in revenue (not a lot compared to more established professionals, but as a part time job it was pretty nice), so I guess I’m not *quite* zero-experience-entry-level. – by hq overview snarrkie – –
