I’m interviewing for a role that is open to both remote and in-person (when it’s safe) work. Should I give salary expectations based on cost of living in the city where the office is located or based on where I’d live working remotely? Cost of living in the office location is a lot higher than where I’d live but since they are also considering in-person candidates, I know the budget is there.

ALWAYS ask for the higher number. I would ask “and if I were to move, what would relo look like ?”

Ask for more, but more than likely, they (as with most companies) will pay you based on your location if you’re going to be fully remote.

Just an FYI. Are you willing to move? I’d be nervous that you will lose the job to someone that is on location. That happened to me. Maybe if you are willing to move tell them you are, but would rather not.

It depends on where you will be working. If you plan to work in the city then that should be what you give. It may be adjusted later on if you choose not to move with the city (some companies will adjust salary based on location changes). Also, don’t forget to ask about relo. Also, it’s ok to ask for their range and have an open conversation about the range.

Op I’m wondering how this played out. This is a fluid situation in TA, and I’m wondering how it’s going. Thanks!

I gave them my range based on the office location’s COL and they were fine with it. I also mentioned that I want to stay remote permanently but would be willing to discuss it again in the future if there’s a need for me to be in person. Hiring manager was also fine with remote since lots of people have been moving all over during the pandemic. I decided not to move forward though because it’s just not the work I’m looking for right now so can’t say much beyond that!
