I made the error of telling a recruiter my
minimum preference of salary when she
asked target salary. She confirmed that's
in line with the role pay scale plus a small
bonus. The employer now made me an
offer for this exact amount & small bonus.
Do I live with my error and just accept and
potentially leave $ on the table? Or is it
acceptable to counter with 5k more for
example, (seeing as everyone usually
recommends countering and that the
employer is expecting a counter/can
always do better)

Is it possible for someone to begin their career in transaction advisory in big 4 without a couple of years of audit experience?

That is where my career goal is and feel that my experience, skills and interests are more suited for this service line.

Would I be reaching hard to secure this type of position coming from financial operations? Or should I be targeting more audit roles in big 4 and worry about eventually transitioning into transaction advisory after a couple of busy seasons?

Is it reasonable to expect the recruiter to tell me whether this role can pay X (my desired number)? Just had a recruiter tell me the firm doesn’t give a max number (after giving me a lower range than my current comp), so if I go in and blow their mind maybe that’s possible. Is this BS? Don’t want to waste my time or theirs

I understand they are different but in my job today, I handle both roles so can go in either direction.
