Want to be an expert negotiator? SoFi recently featured CEO + Founder Alexandra Dickinson in an article on negotiating. 

Unless you’re totally out of range and did no research, it’s OK to overshoot, knowing that you’re going to have to come down. I have clients who say, ‘Well, I didn’t want to put it too high, because what happens if I go too high?’ What will actually happen is [the recruiter] will say, ‘That’s too much. Here’s our budget. How does this sound to you?

Have the salary discussion, but don’t have it too soon. Bring up money when it’s clear that they want you, they need you, they have to have you. You know when they’re really interested because they’re calling you to follow up, to check in, to see how it’s going. That’s how you know it’s time to talk money.
