Last fall I was contacted by a recruiter for a large tech company for a role that’s a perfect fit for me. I’ve been through at least 11 interviews over a 3 month period and I know they have reached out to at least 2 people in my professional network for references (which were glowing).
I’ve been waiting for a few weeks now for them to make an offer or pass. I heard back today and they want to go back over my salary requirements before they make their final decision.
I’m getting the feeling that their decision is being entirely based on comp and I’ve been very clear from the initial phone screen what my expectations are.
Part of me wants to throw my hands up in the air and say enough...I’m fine where I’m at they should be convincing me why I want to leave and go there. The other part is really excited about the role.
How to I approach this while keeping leverage? Any advice?
- Verizon G.JetsonTell them that their delay is causing them to fall behind in the schedule with the other companies you're interviewing with.
- Genentech elffyIt's normal. You don't need to tell them a salary expectation. Ask them what the offer range is first and tell them you will tell them if it's in your acceptance range or not. Put it back on HR
