I had a phone screening for a position that requires a series 7, 9, 10, 24, and 63. I am qualified for the position but will need to obtain 3 of those licenses. The recruiter told me the high range for the salary band is 64k.. this seems super low for this type of position. I told her I was looking for 80k at a minimum. She said she’d put the notes in and would like me to move on to next step. What is the likelihood they’ll give me the 80? Why would she push me through knowing I want 16k more?
