Any tips or strategies for getting offers above current level? Recruiters at big $N seem to always ask current level - any successes in redirecting conversation to desired leveling? Recruiters usually say “it’s strictly about interview performance,” but asking my current level indicates otherwise.
So this question from the recruiter is often times how the comp conversation starts. You don’t have to state your current level if you have concerns about stating it. My suggestion is to state your expectations are to be interviewed and hired at Level X. Hope that helps!
