How to respond to: “what are your salary expectations?
I'm currently a civil design engineer, and trying to switch to real estate as a Program Manager. I have an interview in a week where they tell me I will have to work on ( for about 3-4 hours ) on an operational case study.
The job is located in Paris and the job is in French .
Does anyone here have any case studies in Real estate that they can share ? and if they're from France, that would be even better.
Thank you in advance !

I just got an offer for a senior software developer role at $150k starting. It is a small start up with 28 people in the team and AI driven. My recent salary was $118 so it is quite a jump for me and I really liked the VP I spoke to. Very somber and smart guy.
However, I have several other interviews coming up ranging from big corporate to app companies. Shall I decline the current offer to explore more or accept it but push my start day to later so I could stillbdo the other interviews?

Should I take a strategy and operations management role at McMastercar? Im a hardware engineering trying to switch into tech. I was going after a software role but I failed an interview and realized I needed to grind leetcode for a month. I had this recruiter reach out to me for this role. I dislike my job, and location and wonder if I should take this role. It seems easy and I could use the free time gained for study hard for a year to then try again for the Amazon SDE role.
Bain & Company Got an application stage rejection yet again from Bain & Company for an AC role as an experienced hire (7months of work ex).

I really don't know what to do differently now :/
What is the bonus structure at your law firm? Associate hour requirement at my firm is 1850, for every hour over that you get your billable rate (i.e. if your rate is $200/hr you get $200 for each hour over 1850). To me this seems like its just overtime pay. Is this typical?

“Retained” - was chatting with my fiancé, who works in the entertainment field, about advertising recruiters and she told me to ask if the recruiter was “retained” by the company.
So how are most recruiters looped in with agencies? I assumed most are hired directly and then they submit some select people to the ECD or creative manager at the company. But my fiancé questioned whether some recruiters proactively try to send people to agencies without being asked...

Until we move away from the billable hours model, there will not be true work life balance when free time is preferred. As you gain experience and knowledge within our field we are too knowledgeable to be equating our value to time spent discussing or doing. There is an inherent conflict from leaders that want to maximize revenue which means maximize billable hours and staff that minimize hours.

So I’m training my counterpart in India to do a similar role to what I’m doing now. I’m assured of a promotion in the next 3 months but they just stopped hiring my position in the US. I feel like I should be safe and the plan towards how my responsibilities should change seem solid and logical, but a million people have said that before getting laid off. Feels like shit. Looking for advice.

Deloitte Digital Just requesting insights preferably from Deloitte Digital folks or Deloitte in general. This is in Canada though.
Had my partner interview 2 weeks ago & I think it went pretty well. Been radio silence since then. Emailed the recruiter twice (once each week) but did not hear back.
Just wondering if this is normal? Should I wait & hope or just move on to looking for other roles. Thanks.
Do you want to be paid less? I think the answer is pretty obvious.
Read what AD1 said.
You could focus on understanding the range for the role and ask them to share. If it’s clear they need you to specify, I would focus on a range that you’d need in order to consider a move, leave current compensation out of the discussion.
Completely agree with this. With regards to what you need to leave, don’t be afraid to ask for what you truly want. Undercutting yourself will just end up wasting everyone’s time.
Given that you would be leaving institutional knowledge and an established network, I would request current (base + bonus) + 20% at minimum.
Hit them with that 3 piece combo 🤜
I don’t know what that is…but it sounds like a skill I need.
You want us to tell you your expectations?
Just say a base of 175 to 200 depending on bonus and role and work life balance
What is it that you want?
SN: I personally talk base first because bonuses can be anything on any given year. Companies will sling out 20-25% then it’s a bad year or the group doesn’t ever hit that so you only get 5-6% if that much. Haha, No. Pay me and let the bonuses and the rest be gravy. Bills and expenses have to be taken care of and waiting/hoping for an annual bonus to do it is not it.
Break out your base, add the percentage that you want to make it worth it, and start there.
I would say 200tc if this role is significant better wlb
Do most people include 401k match in TC
Yeah I don’t include it when I’m posting about TC but it’s definitely material in my new job so it was a consideration
Thanks everyone for the advice. I had a call with a recruiter today and stuck to base salary and tacked on 10% to make it worth the transition. I chose 10% because the bonus structure was materially higher. My price was above the top range they offered but they are going back to the hiring manager to see what they can do
160k. Bonus target is 20% and I would definitely leave my role for this job.
