If you don’t have an exploding offer, you don’t have leverage to ask them to make a decision soon. That said, I think it’s a good sign that they reached out to confirm interest. My boss did that before he hired me, but he only sped up when I told him I had an exploding offer. Keep looking!

They’re keeping you “warm” on purpose bc they like you. Source: I do this a lot as a hiring manager when internal things get in the way of the hiring process like reorgs, calendars not aligning for other interviewers on the panel, etc. It doesn’t mean anything that the job posting is still up.

Agree with Manager 1. Also some postings are just set up for a certain period of time and sometimes auto-repost. That part doesn’t mean anything

If a job posting states that the salary range for a position is $65,000-$85,000, and you give a range of $65,000-$70,000 for your expected salary. Is it safe to assume that if they were to offer you a position, you would be given an offer within your stated range? Or might they give you more? Also, if they do end up giving you salary between your stated range, can you propose a counter offer of $75,000? Thank you for any responses, I'm somewhat new to salary negotiations and such.
