    Negotiation

    I wasn't able to negotiate much, since I'm only undergraduate. The qualification to enter tsmc is quite high (usually should be master graduate to be able to enter as software engineer). I'm trying to ask for higher pay, but the HR says that it's the highest they can offer me for my level, and I accept it.
