Remember that even with an internal position, you have to do your homework and be fully prepared to get what you deserve. For example, consult sites like Salary.com to learn average pay scales in that job for your area.
Also, consider the benefits that are being offered – the new position may come with more vacation time or even a car allowance, and that may factor into your salary negotiations. Finally, don't be afraid to fight for what you're worth, because you wouldn't be offered the position if the employer didn't want you.
"During an interview, and all the way through to the salary negotiation, your emphasis ought to be on what you can tangibly improve, mostly because you’ve improved things under similar challenges before," advises David Wiacek, a certified professional career coach, and resume writer.
