When is it ok to ask about the salary range when talking to recruiters? I do want to waste my time with interviews if he salary is not there.

You are not seeing it from the right angle. Talking to recruiters should be your regular exercise, going through the motion of interviews and discussions again and again. Some processes will stop early, some might yield the offer that you politely decline. But *do interview* a lot, so once you get that *one* opportunity, you are ready.

McK: way too many talents say yes to the first role and salary offered!

They should ask by the end of the first call. If not, you ask before setting up a time to interview.

Up front. It should be something you ask before or during your first call with a headhunter

Thank you, that is very insightful.

First call. Too many recruiters trying to get talent at discount prices.
