I'm looking at going back to work after a few years off. I was contacted by a large corporation who saw my linkedin profile and had a phone interview with them today.
After the interview I felt so annoyed at myself...I realised I always sell myself short. The Interviewer asked about my pay previously and I told her what it, was then stupid me added "I would consider less as I've been out of the industry for a few years". After speaking to DP he said to me that it would only take me a month or two to get back into it all like when I had DS and went back to work.
I have been previously advised previously that my pay at my previous job was on the low side given my qualifications....so I don't know why I would accept less.
Ah...I am a dill. I just wanted to vent.
Luckily the person still seemed interested so I am now going through next steps...personality test to see if I am a "cultural fit".

If they offer you the job, once you get to salary discussions, say "I'm willing to accept your offer of $x but believe I'm worth a salary of $y so would you consider paying that once I pass my probationary period?" That way you get the chance to go in, get back into the swing of things and show that you're worthy of the higher salary.
ETA - if they agree, be sure to get it written into your contract!

Don't be too hard on yourself Night Owl, I think we can all be prone to doing that at times when we're nervous! It always feels weird when we have to talk ourselves up in interviews, and I could imagine it would be even harder when you're trying to get back into the workforce.
And excellent advice from JR03!
Good luck with the job prospect!
