My advice: Stick to your guns. Even $35k is very low, so I wouldn't go any lower than $30. Negotiating is easy when you stick to a simple principle: No deal is always better than a bad deal.

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. :)
