I'm in a bit of a pickle. I'm interviewing for a CD position in-house and I have absolutely no idea what salary range to ask for. I have 6 years of experience, and am based in Australia. The company is known to pay quite well also, knowing to pay above market rate. The range out there is so broad between agency and in-house, and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, not to mention worried that I could either undersell myself or ask too much and not get the job.

Have about $10,000 as my emergency fund.. with the HYSA rates decreasing- would you’ll suggest to keep most of it in a CD and lock in a certain APY or split it into half? Also, any good recommendations for both? PS: I’ll have my rolling salary checks so don’t mind putting the money away for sometime in a CD

Bringing on Principals. We have spent 5-years building out a remote-native management consulting firm and now growing by bringing on Principals... Our firm is taking a different approach to growth by offering full access to our remote infrastructure and operations team as well as the bench of talent.
