ive been interviewing with this company for 4 times. 2x with my potential boss/who i will be directly reporting to who is the EVP, 1x with a colleague who has experience in my interviewing position, 1x with another colleague.

this position was just posted and i could not find any salary range for this exact position on major job sites like glassdoor and indeed, but i do have some national and local average range for this position. The company also told me that i was the only one being interviewed for this position, although they told me they were also unsure about hiring me and wanted to think about it...

I emailed Hr to give me a range and that im negotiable so i can see what they say first, but Hr keeps asking me what i want.

i have another interview with the EVP/my potential direct reporting boss tomorrow, my plan is to just ask directly what is the range for this, but any tips on how you would approach this?

thanks 🙏

    Throw an absurdly high number or 135% of what you think your market value is. Also lookup Ackerman bargaining.

      Rule number 1 of negotiation: the first who speaks lose, always. Never give a number first.

      This is kind of off topic, but when did this epidemic of people spelling “lose” as “loose” start? It’s become so widespread and is just downright wrong.

      You are right, I take it back! I corrected it.
      Actually I was seating on the restroom, doing my stuff, when I wrote that loose piece of literature. That's telling how much I didn't give a shit about it.

      PS: can I use the non native card for my defense or it's too big?

      Yeah no worries man, just wanted to see why it’s used so often.

    I read EVP as executive vice president. Direct report means he is reporting to you. So you are saying EVP will be reporting to you? What your title will be? President?

      So he will be your manager, which gives you access to leadership influence. That's good
