What do you say when asked about compensation range during the phone screen / 1st interview? If it's an online app I leave it blank but when a person asks I just tell them a range because I don't know what else to say. I'm worried that I might miss out on a higher salary by telling them my range (85-90k for senior accountant in HCOL city).

Applied to Senior Accountant role at a small company. Had a video interview with the CFO who ended by saying they’d send me a “case study” and I’d get 24 hours to complete it. Anyone have to do one of these before? Is there anything I can do to prep? Thanks

Thoughts on FP&A? I’m currently a senior tax accountant and got asked to the last round of interviews for a senior FP&A position (narrowed down to 2 people). I feel like I’ll get it as I have friends at this company in accounting who put in recommendations for me. Only thing holding me back is I made manager this week and overall like the flexibility of PA, hate busy season though.

I know this bowl is for H1B but posting to see if anyone has insight - friend has final round interview for a strategy role at a tech company but he’ll need a TN. I asked him if he checked the visa sponsorship box and he said he didn’t because he thought he’d get TN under accountant or economist.. but now he thinks the role won’t really pass under accountant and is worried. I don’t know what to tell him - Should he reach out to HR now or wait until final round is offer / they come with an offer?
