I left public on great terms about a month and a half ago for industry. I worked at a large regional for 3.5 years. I hate my new job and I am not getting treated very well. I left for a sizeable raise and for what I thought would be good work/life balance. It turns out basically all of the things sold to me in the interview were BS with the exception of the salary. Is it feasible to go back? I would rather deal with the things I didn’t love about public than my current job.

I am interviewing for Benefits Specialist positions currently. What do you say when a hiring manager or recruiter asks what you made in your last position?

I have found they are asking range before they tell me the range. I have done research for market rate and answer with the range I researched.
