At $22k they should expect a data entry clerk, not a writer. Take what you can get is preferable to being unemployed in most cases. Especially since you have no built-up unemployment bennies. Take it and keep looking hard. Now after 2 weeks on the job, you have "EXPERIENCE" with their systems, the software, etc, etc. Add that to your resume, widen your net, and take the 1st next thing.

Ok, here's the situation. I'm a recent college grad with 2 years of
experience. I've recently had two job interviews that both went very
well. The problem is that one is out of town and the other is located
near where I live. I don't like the place out of town as much as the one
in town, but I've been offered a job out of town and haven't heard
anything back from the one in town yet. The one out of town only offered
me $22k, because they're located in a very small city and it is a very
small company. That is too low. I was expecting $35k (they said they
couldn't do that). I told them the very lowest I could go is $30 (and to
me, that is being very generous!!). Please give me some general advice on
salary negotiations and on what I should do!!! HELP! Thanks. :)
