A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn for a director role, seems interesting but I don’t want to waste my time interviewing if the salary isn’t great. Can I ask the recruiter to provide a salary range before I speak with them?

Yes, politely.

I would also ask any deal breakers at the same time... such as WFH, leave, compensation structure

Of course you can! Just say, “Can you please share the budgeted compensation range before we move forward? I want to make sure we’re in alignment.”

like

Absolutely. In fact, I almost always start out the interview process making sure the range is within what my requirements are. I would phrase it as wanting to respect their time as well in interviewing the right candidate.

I asked and it worked! They told me. I can’t believe I’ve never done this before!

I don’t really see myself staying until partner so I’m trying to weigh out the pros and cons to help me make a decision.

As the holidays roll around & family gatherings get more frequent, I can’t help but notice so many of the women in my family settled when choosing a partner.
Like, “making it work” won’t change the fact that they married emotionally abusive & mediocre men. I get that a lot of wives stay in relationships “for the kids” but often times feels like kids who grow up with parents in loveless marriage end up having emotional & boundary issues as a result. Y’all I want us to do better for the next gen.
