I have never experienced not revealing your current CTC will work with recruiters.
I have tried it always to refuse saying current salary instead ask them their budget and if they don't have one i share my expected numbers.
Once i do it, their next question is again
"Ok. what's your current CTC?". This happened not once but every single time
It gets so irritating.
Has anyone experienced this.

Every Hr asks this question. It is upto you whether you reveal it or not. May be not in initial discussion. During bgv anyway they get to know your salary.

Hi fishes,

Currently working in ZS Associates as DAA and got job offer from 159 solutions (acquired firm by IQVIA) for higher position of Consultant (equivalent pos as AC in ZS)
At ZS, CCTC: 10Fixed + 3

Is it a good offer to take or should I keep my job hunt on?

Lateraled in spring (to a much bigger/more global firm) and have been extremely slow, esp lately.

Especially worried about the lost development as a jr/mid and possible layoffs. Partners are hopeful it will pick up soon, but I’ve considered calling my old firm to see if they’re still busy lol didn’t leave badly and they’re more leanly staffed. Thoughts?
