Just started looking for another job after being with my commercial for 6 years. I’m encountering more and more recruiters pushing the salary expectations question at the recruiter interview. Basically won’t move forward in the process if you don’t give a number or the right number (usually low). Anyone else experiencing this?

Yes I was in the same case, I usually push them to share the range or mentioned that I will be happy to talk about numbers later in the process as I need to evaluate the responsibilities and scope of the job. It happened that some really are pushing even to know the current salary, once you play the « I’m not legally obligated to answer that question » ( England ), they are a bit less stressing.

Help! Applying to a job and one of the only real requirement is to show how I’m “adept at understanding client needs, and designing and implementing creative solutions”. My issue is I work in risk advisory and most of our client engagements don’t actually involve implementation. We usually present our findings and recommendations and move on. What’s the best way I can tackle this? I’m coming up blank and the deadline is soon.

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Just heard back from EY that they will not proceed with an offer 😞 Receuiter said I did great in interviews but the market condition change/lack of pipeline was the concern. Recruiter wanted to keep the communication open for next year as they expect things to change by then, but all sounds a bit like a nicely wrapped rejection. Disappointed but I guess I should focus on the next interviews with Deloitte and KPMG!

I work at a boutique (currently ~14 bankers and 10 back office roles). Joined in august. Since august, 3 senior bankers (MD / VP) 1 HR director, and now 2 analysts have left for great opportunities. To be honest I’m happy and like my role, plus it’s too early to think about switching firms already. I am now the only analyst left, we have another one joining in January. Any advice on how I can leverage this for comp discussions at the end of the year?

Anybody else over working in the rat race altogether? I’ve jumped around a few times in the last 5 years, improving my comp and aligning more to my strengths and interests, yet I’m still unfulfilled. I’m pretty much doing exactly what the last 20 years of being in consulting has prepared me for: advising clients at the highest levels - and I’m bored. I’d love to leave and take up a more creative job, but of course, that doesn’t pay the bills - anybody think of, or actually made that transition?
