A recruiter asked me what my expected salary was and I wasn’t prepared and answered too low. Is there anyway to come back from this or if I get an offer will it be what I asked for?

No worries. The recruiter just wanted to make sure that you are not totally over the range. They will check with you again when they extend the offer. FYI, I got 20k more than I initially told them. Good luck!

What’s the salary range for a senior consultant coming in as a technology strategist at Deloitte? Recruiter told me I should be receiving an offer letter for $120k soon. I have 7 yrs professional experience (3.5 Fed consulting and 1.5 doing IC work). I have a TS/SCI with CI Poly and I can’t help but think $120k is low. Curious to hear thoughts of others.

Should I pay 1.5X rent to get out here and get a nice place?

My last day with Deloitte was a week ago - I signed several authorization forms allowing them to withhold from my final paycheck the 1/2 of my sign-on bonus I owe back for leaving in 1.5 years, sans some FICA taxes. Today, I received a barely coherent email saying, “due to some glitch, the loan amount wasn’t adjusted from pay-stub”... and asking me to wire transfer the amount to them. It’s to the point that if it wasn’t on the same thread as the original email, I would assume it’s a scam. Wtf?
