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

I have an interview next week and I’m not feeling too confident. Mainly because.. I suck at interviews :( I’ve been with my current firm for 15 years and I’m seeing the ceiling of growth in my role. I’ve been reading sample interview questions and practice answering them. But I don’t feel comfortable actually saying the answers not because they dont apply to me but because knowing myself I don’t normally can construct great sentences and it’s hard for me to put my thoughts into words. Con’t...

If I leave for a way smaller firm (it’s famous regionally but their whole practice is under 30 ppl) to join their deal advisory group, would my exit ops be way worse? Big four firms currently seem to not be hiring and idk when they would be again. I’d also have the freedom to rotate between financial due diligence and valuation services. I was at EY then KPMG in audit. The other option is to stay until big four hires again and then go back to EY or transfer in KPMG both which aren’t guaranteed.
