I’m still interviewing, that doesn’t mean I’ll get an offer but I haven’t had any of my interviews canceled or had any recruiters tell me that they were going to pause on my process. I’m in Texas for ref.

I wouldn’t read into it, likely more precautionary for your and the interviewers’ health (in case you travel to the interview) than indicative of slowed hiring.

FWIW PMOing a deal rn and the exec decision was made to do all incremental Day 1 executive hiring interviews virtually going forward effective immediately because of safety.

Are any firms freezing firing?? 🤣

I'm applying for a job and there's a line item where they ask for desired compensation. Since the job posting doesn't include one & that role in particular doesn't appear on Glassdoor, is it ok to write something like "negotiable" or "based on budget allocated for this position"? Or should I just include a range? I don't want to ruin a chance at a higher salary range by selling myself short off the bat. I haven't applied to jobs in years so any advice you all could provide would be appreciated!
