Just started looking for another job after being with my commercial for 6 years. I’m encountering more and more recruiters pushing the salary expectations question at the recruiter interview. Basically won’t move forward in the process if you don’t give a number or the right number (usually low). Anyone else experiencing this?

Hello... I have cleared three rounds of interview and my recruiter said I am still in contention for the Job position at Deloitte. However, I don’t see things going progress since 2 months. My last round of interview was on 10th April. But since then the only email which got was that I am in contention but no updates. I’m not sure what exactly the process would be! I don’t know when will they even do my background check... I don’t want to miss an opportunity with Deloitte.
