Recruiter will only really be table to talk ranges... the recruiter has a list of keywords they need to look out for when you talk with them. They have absolutely no idea what you will be doing. Just passing you along to the real decision makers if you say the keywords they are looking for. Hiring manager will be able to filter the range down to a more specific level based on your experience and how bad they want you. They are the ones who will be negotiating your compensation to the C-level folks.

Typically when do you have compensation conversation? Recruiter stage? Offer stage? I talked to recruiter, seems like I goofed up.

If you are still moving forward and they know your ranges, I wouldn't worry. Your decision maker is hiring manager. You need to make sure they like you. Unless you're worried you low balled yourself? Also - compensation has come up for me during recruiter stage... and then again at offer stage. First is to see if they can even match your expectation. You dont have to answer but just know you could go thru process and it's not a fit if too low. Second is to firm up... that's usually the real deal but would be guided by range you mentioned to recruiter if you did so.

Hi fishes! I Have an interview at an agency in NY I’ve been crushing on for a while. Having a hard time figuring out my salary range. I make 90k in SF at agency, would it be crazy for me to enter the discussion at 85-90k? Knowing I’d be willing to be backed down to around 80k (give or take 2k). Glassdoor is a little confusing bc there’s separate suggestions for “senior designer” and “senior graphic designer”. Anyone have suggestions or willing to offer how much they make? Thanks y’all!
