Submit your salary requirements and consider weeding out companies outside of your range. Of course research market rates to the best of your ability, but don’t settle.

If it's through a recruiter, ask the budgeted range. If it's an online application, put zero. You want to talk to someone and not undersell yourself.

This. And hold firm on talking specifics until offer. Come prepared with market research. Signed, someone who got screwed once and learned the lesson.

Ok need some advice-I’ve been at my firm for 8 months supporting the same attorney since day 1. About 3 weeks ago a new associate started and I’m her main support also. I want to get her something for Christmas but I know very little about her lol. She’s in her late 20’s, very stylish, single. I also don’t know what a good amount to spend is. For reference we are in a suburb of Syracuse, NY, we represent school districts and my salary is $42,000/yr. Any tips would be awesome!!

Got a verbal offer for a sr consultant role at an FSI for 80K base, 8% bonus. Today, I see a job posting for the same job and company and the range is 68K-111K. The hiring manager in the interviews stated the range was 65-78K. HR just called and told me I have one day to decide. I haven't received the email/paper offer yet. This is leading me to feel off about this situation. What should I do? Its still a 15K pay bump for me.
