Dear Hiring Manager,

Thank you for offering me the position at Google. I'm passionate about the role, and I'm excited to start.

For base salary, I am looking for something closer to $125,000.

Here's the reason why: I'm currently making $130,000 in my current job. Also, I'm looking to buy a house and pay off my school debt. So the extra money would make a difference.

Is there an wiggle room on base salary?

Thanks,

Elsa Erickson
