I am going into a second interview for a project coordinator position at a new manufacturing company. I have gotten information regarding the number/type of projects I’d be handling. I expect the question regarding compensation is coming up. The PC job posting listed a $82-90k pay range. If I say $85-95k how will they perceive this? I feel somewhere between $90-95k would align with my professional experience. Thoughts and input would be much appreciated!

For example I know McKinsey has their implementation business where they’ll hire experienced sales and marketing execs. What other opportunities are out there? Is the pay good? What’s the WLB like?

I live in Sydney, Australia and am looking to move over to NYC in the coming months and get a job as a Strategist (I have ~4 years experience, my Fishbowl profile is out of date). At the moment, are people are getting hired remotely/over Zoom calls etc? And to be clear, I don't mean working remotely, just the hiring process. Normally I'm told its pretty much impossible to get hired if not in NY (And still in Aus.), but I'm thinking now could be my chance. I would need to be sponsored though.
