Could you lie to a company and tell them you have another offer letter for negotiating purposes? Trying to see if a company would ever ask proof of the other offer letter. Fighting for 120k base for a Splunk position.

I told a company that was recruiting me that I was due for a promo that year and also that I had a great setup (amazing perks and I knew everyone) so they would have to go way beyond my new promo salary to get me None of it could be verified by the recruiter That led to a 45% pay increase

You could try, but it is a risk. Question: If you have an old .docx offer letter sitting around from your last job offer, what stops you from redacting it and filling in whatever you want?

I interviewed for a position remotely 3 weeks ago with the 3 partners of an agency at the same time, and it went well. The CFO then took 30 minutes after the initial hour to talk more and she asked that I reach out to her for more questions as well as to let her know when I have relocated as I told them that I am about to move. After 3 weeks, I sent a follow-up note to the HR contact and no response all last week. Shall I try contacting the CFO directly since she did ask that I do? Thoughts?

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

Have been pinged for a possible role as Director of Operations at a promising looking startup with a 50%% pay increase & equity.
