I have several questions and I hope you can shed some lights
1. Do consulting firms typically ask for salary expectations? If they do, aren't they supposed to follow the standardized compensation rather than based on the employee's current payslip?
2. I have mistakenly informed HR (via a courtesy call) of a quite low salary expectation and HR will reach out again verbally (before the offer letter is made) to inform the full details regarding my employment. Is it possible that I could renegotiate the salary if it is not with my expectation (even though I gave a low range). How am I supposed to negotiate? should I say:
a. I apologize that I sent a low salary range before and I would like to see whether is it possible to renegotiate to $xx?
b. Others (Any advice would be appreciated)
I look forward to all of your responses and advice. Thank you very much in advance!
