When a recruiter asks what salary you want for a specific role, do you throw out a number you think seems plausible or do you ask them what it pays?

I have a number that would make me move. It's a high number. I'm really good. I'll bring in more than enough revenue to hit your profit goals. Convince me to join your company. I hate it when smart people in this industry get lowballed by not taking the same approach.

The lower end of that broad range btw should be the number under which you’d never accept an offer, no matter the perks and amenities.

I first ask them what it pays. Some get stubborn and just won’t say it. So i usually give them an intentionally very broad range saying i realize it’s pretty broad but at this point in the conversation i lack too many details to narrow it down and we will have to rediscuss when we figure out those details. By that time they usually give a number. From there, i negotiate.

I was fired today. What do I do next? I’m a third year associate at a “boutique” firm. Although I knew my performance wasn’t good and I was on thin ice, I was never given any formal warning, so I was caught off guard when they called me and just fired me, effective immediately. I was locked out of the email and computer system before the call was over, and I’m already off the website. I was so caught off guard I hardly remember the conversation (cont)

I think (fingers crossed) that I am about to get a job offer for a management role. It would be a 45 percent pay increase and I honestly might be able to negotiate it to up to 55, but I just don’t feel excited about it. It’s a smaller company then where I am now, but still a decent size and great reputation, but the team is much smaller. I really want to be more excited because I know it’s a good opportunity. Any advice?
