Currently interviewing for an Information Security Director role in industry with a TC ~ 210k. However, going through 5 interviews, I realized the role they are hiring for/asking for is a AWS Product Security Director skillset (which I have) and not what the original JD is asking for. The latter (IMO) is more specialized and demand a higher comp. How do I safely raise this discrepancy with the recruiter and ask for more comp? If so, what’s the market rate for Product Security Director?
