The recruiter works for you. Tell them you did some research and this is your new range. No justification needed. “This is what I’m looking for…”

Considering role at KPMG just found out from the offer that I wouldn't get any 401k match until 2 years which wasn't mentioned in interviews just that benefits offer 6% and didn't specify how eligibility works? So if I start I'm not eligible to next year then following year is when the match is paid? That is a lot of time value of money lost. Are other firms more competitive, I'm following up with pending offers from Deloitte and PWC, do they do the same?

Ever have an interview so bad you felt almost good about it? The recruiter started our conversation venting about a referral who was grossly under qualified. This immediately shifted to the agency does not follow industry standard titles. They are all very senior...so I should consider a much more junior role (they hadn't talked more about the role at hand). After talking of my experience they then summed me up as a "media person" and I had to correct that I never worked at a media agency.

Take mid tier offer, apply to b4 after HF 3. Take small firm offer, apply to b4 after HF 4. Take mid tier offer, become senior, and then apply to b4 2 years later
