Hello all, 

I just interviewed today for a summer internship in NYC and they hired me on the spot. During the interview, they asked how much I wanted and I somewhat arbitrarily said $15/hr. I'm concerned whether or not I undervalued myself, and, if so, what I should do about it?

Is it a well known firm? $15/hr for your first internship is not bad...

That is exactly what I made at my first gig... but it was in Mississippi and not NYC.  I hear the cost of living is far higher up there.

Oliver,

You got your foot in the door. That's all that matters. Capitalize on it. Fulfill your IDP, save for the ARE. Congrats!

It's a small boutique firm. Thanks for your insight, everyone!
