I always ask them what is their range and then i shoot slightly above that. Had one recently where they said 90-100k and I said I’d need 110k. They said they could work with me and throw in a kicker to make up the difference. You basically just don’t want to speak first with your number.

Thank you!!

Just shoot ridiculously high and then ask if that’s reasonable, then they’ll give you the top of the range

I refused to state a number at all throughout the interview process and told them I was interested in the role for the experience I’ll gain from switching to consulting rather than compensation. Tried to force it out of me multiple times but held my ground and stated I don’t have a preference. Ended up getting an offer I was very happy with at the higher ended of the range for the role I applied to.

Question for recent Deloitters and other consultants who work at consulting firms with job application forms like Taleo (a detailed form) Did anyone skip the non-required blanks and yet still get an interview/offer? For example, Deloitte application has non-required fields asking for supervisors from each job. I would like to put a note: “My supervisor does not know I am job searching; references available upon request should I be selected as a finalist candidate.” I worry that’ll look bad
