Default Average salaries in Fairmont

I recently applied for a position with a non-profit organization in Fairmont. I have made the first round of cuts based on resume/cover letter, and now they are asking remaining candidates to submit salary expectations before they proceed.

I currently reside in the DC area, so I honestly have no idea what a fair expectation would be for this area. I have a Master's degree with significant research and internship experience, but this would technically be my first "real job" in the field.

I don't want to over or under price myself out of the running before even getting an interview, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You sure that's the average? That sounds a little high to me

About what you're making in DC. Position-for-position, I'd say Fairmont would be 10-15% lower than DC (lower cost of living), but this would be a promotion for you, which would bump you up about 10-15%, so I'd call it even.

Except there is a huge amount of jobs which you will never FIND existing in Fairmont
