Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Typically, yes. You make more as a contractor because you have to cover the cost of your own benefits and don’t usually have PTO.

how are you all feeling about an org that is saying absolutely nothing about everything going on in the world. nothing about mental health awareness month, nothing about rowe v wade, nothing about inflation, etc but we are in the HR/Recruiting consulting realm and our clients are even asking us for guidance on these conversations . (yes, myself and others have also asked) I have been looking and interviewing elsewhere but looking on how you are all navigating having healthy conversations!
