I said that I will accept the job offer, can I still negotiate salary?

A recruiter offered me a job on the phone and I said that I would accept the job. I thought it would be wise to receive a formal offer before salary negotiations. Did I do this wrong? How should I go about negotiating? Do I negotiate with HR instead? Thanks in advance!

I'm sure negotiations will be through HR and not the recruiter, if you search through the forums you can find some threads talking about salary negotiations

If you didn't sign a contract yet I would still negotiate.

what do you mean a recruiter offered you a job on the phone

usually recruiter pitches position to you

you interview with firm

firm submits offer

you negotiate

... it didn't happen that way?

The offer didn't include a salary?

No.

You signed, so no, not really.

This sounds like a quick way to start off on the wrong foot.
