I had first and second round interviews for a specific role at a company—and even discussed salary range with the recruiter during first round—then I get an email from the recruiter saying the SVP and ACD I interviewed with loved me and thought I’d be a great fit, and that she’d be in touch when a position opens up that matches my skills and level. Has anyone ever had something like this happen? I’m so confused, because the role was for my skills and level.

Yes...it seems to be a issue I have been encountering as well, as I started interviewing in the past couple months. I have been transparent with my salary parameters and went through rounds of interviews. Same role, skills, years of experience as my current role, but salaries almost $20-$40k less than I currently make.

What I found odd is that the recruiter and I were aligned on a salary for the role, and she confirmed the range that the number we spoke about was within the range. Is her email insinuating then, that I’m just too expensive?

I foolishly took my current role with a title and pay cut, after reaching an understanding with the recruiter that it would be adjusted once I had been at the company for a few months. Lesson learned, and it would appear that was just a line to get me in the door. I am now being extra careful and only accepting roles at my level of seniority and within the appropriate salary range.

Company B also said there is still a round of reference checks left and the holidays are coming up.. help! What should I do?
