Not at all. You're usually one of 2-4 candidates they are interviewing for that job in the final round, and they try to schedule all of you in the same week. Even if you are the only one, it's by no means a gimme. In industry the final tends to be the "real" interview

Recruiter called today and she asked my comp expectations before I asked the comp range for her roles. I made the mistake (?) of saying my range first. Is there any way and is it appropriate to flip the question around? Or to just refuse to answer? Also, recruiter asked where I am with other interviews and what kinds of other ops I'm entertaining. I said I have several interviews lined up and vaguely named some industries (big tech, HF, VC, etc; all true). Is that bad / too much info?

Expenses are about $1500/month, everything else is invested. I am anticipating a bonus of around $5k in July. Does it make sense to spend all of that plus some for a nice watch? At what income level did you make a purchase like this? I am trying to justify it in my head but I don’t know if I should wait.
