I have been in health care for over 20 years. I started a new job last year and noticed that for various reasons, such as late submissions, the company will change my agreed-upon pay.

Recruiters out there…. I am interviewing for my DREAM job. It’s a 4 step process. I interviewed with the recruiter and it seemed to go well but I’m not sure if I messed up at the salary expectations. After doing a internet search for the job salary I was under the impression it’s was between 87-110k. When I asked if that was accurate I was told no and it’s between 75-87k. I proceeded to say my range is between 85k-90. Did I aim too high ? I’m nervous that I will be out of budget. Help!
