How far are you in process? What’s the leverage you have eg competing offers? All this will determine the tactics. If you have specific skills they are looking for, highlight that.

Let’s say you’re in the offer stage. How would you go about the following: Scenario 1: you have competing offers from consulting firms. Scenario 2: you have competing offers from consulting and industry.

I’ve always just asked for a slightly higher number even when I didn’t have competing offers, but was counting on them really wanting to hire me. I’d be curious to hear tips from others! How do you respond when they ask you desired salary and current salary?
