For my first real software gig I ask for what I thought was on the high end for someone with no real job experience. I felt like being on the high end was beneficial for me but also my likelihood to get the job. I feel like it demonstrated quality through price. I asked for $60k and they gave me the job.

Less than two years later I interviewed for another job and was offered 120k plus like 30k signing bonus. I didn't wind up taking the job (and still don't make that much because entrepreneur) but that was good validation.
