At what point do you talk salary with a recruiter? Want to get it out of the way because if expectations aren’t in line no point in continuing discussions, but don’t want to bring it up too soon?

My experience is that they want to broach it as early as possible to screen out misalignments. So I see no harm in bringing it up early

I always ask the recruiter what the range is for the position - and it puts them on the spot. Sometimes they actually respond with numbers and that way you don’t sell urself short.

Usually that happens in the first conversation. The recruiter will screen you then they’ll ask your # or range. They’re really trying to get you to stick to a number so give them a broad range— like a $50k range with tour actual number somewhere in there.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
