Hello all - So I am in the market to switch jobs. Last year, I did well to get the on-site interview for a midlevel experience technical job position. After the interview, HR recruiter was gauging how much I wanted. I deflected the question many times, but she pestered me to pick a number and gave me a range. I picked a number on the higher side plus 10%. She outright rejected it and later low-balled me that internal candidates with decades of experience won't get that salary. She also questioned me about the title of job and if lower band is best suitable for me. I told her to get back to me with the offer first. Next call never happened. Fast forward to today, I interviewed for the similar position with the same company, at a different location. This time, I am going to get interviewed tomorrow and have HR recruiter call the following day. What is weird is that it's the same HR who low-balled me few months ago! I don't know if she'll recognize me, but if she does, I imagine it's the same play again and may know my range already. Any tips on how I can be smart this time. I know I won't suggest or commit to a salary figure this time. Let them make an offer...anything else? Thanks.
