I’d like to be prepared for the initial phone screen convo, which will only last 20-30 minutes. The JD shows the salary range as 110-130(USD) commensurate with experience, but I’m happy to land anywhere in that range—yet I don’t think it’s good to disclose that. How can I tactfully still talk to the recruiter about landing closer to 130? Not trying to be greedy, but certainly aiming high!

I agree with the post above, just tell them what your range is and then sit quietly (which will be super difficult).

If I were in your shoes, I would simply say that my salary range is between $120-$140k and I’m certain we can come to the right total compensation together (meaning you and the company in agreement on salary). It says you want to work with them, in partnership as you would as an employee, and also asserts your awareness of your value. If you want to land on $130k, state over that number and you’ll likely end up at $130k. And it is perfectly reasonable for you to ask for what you are worth, be prepared to show that in your interview, state the problem you solve for the company and how that will generate revenue (in the short or long-term). There are candidates who ask for a lot of money with no evidence to demonstrate their ability to perform at a higher compensation structure, which shows a lack of experience in the work force. Companies want to hire problem solvers, that’s really what we all do in our roles, so operate on your strengths and state it up front…… and then say nothing after that😁. You will likely want to say why or couch it, but don’t. Go get after it!!!!!

To make sure I’m following, I should say that I’m looking to be in the range of 120-140 and I’m certain we can come to the mutually beneficial salary together. Yes I get that!!
