Consulting

Initial phone conversation with recruiter and she said base salary can be up to $145k but it might be hard to push above that. I’m targeting $160k base. How to make that happen? Possible?

“Might be hard to push above that” sounds like they’ll pay for it if they think it’s worth it. So be worth it, kill the interviews

Agree with D1. If they don’t want to budge on base. Try sign on bonus or request a guaranteed year end payout if you perform satisfactory. There is room there, but sometimes it requires creativity

At a previous employer, I was able to negotiate 💯 paid benefits to compensate for a salary that was lower than my request. Then again, that was at a small start-up but it certainly helped

Demonstrate you're value. And dont ask for an amount. Say something along the lines, knowing what you now know about me and my fit with you, you can go ahead and provide something you think is fair.. then you can negotiate... bottom line, if they don't move up - they dont think you're worth it. Gotta show them you are!

What would happen if someone was interviewing for a role and accidentally passed gas, but otherwise crushed the interview? Has anyone experienced this before? No clue what I’d do as the interviewer
