I’m pretty sure I was rejected from a company because I wouldn’t reveal what salary range I was expecting.
How hard is it?
“You interviewed me. I know you have a range budgeted out already. I expect you’ve done your research on the market. Offer me what you want to. If it doesn’t work, then I’m willing to talk about it, because I am very interested in working for you.”
“We just want to make you happy the first time and not have to negotiate”.
“I understand that.”
“So what are you expecting?”
“Again, I’m expecting that you’ve done your research, know my skills, and will offer me what you want to pay me.”
She hung up and I got an email saying that I was no longer qualified.
