I've heard this as well, and this advice has been good for me. I wait
for the employer to bring it up, then I start higher than I know they're
willing to pay, and haggle down. It seems to be a lot easier than asking
what they're willing to pay, the employer starting low, and trying to
haggle up. It's worked for me, and in most cases, I've gotten the salary
I was hoping to get.
