Hope we're all doing well and staying safe.
About a week ago I had an interview (with say company A) and I think I shot myself in the foot. I was asked about compensation expectations and I just blurted out a figure (say $x), which was about my current salary (I'm grossly underpaid). I didn't realize until the figures had come out what I had said. I just received an offer (from say company B) which is $x * 2.2 (yes, I reeally shot myself in the foot...), but I really want to see company A's interview through because I like the work they do. At this point, it makes no sense for me to continue to let them think I'll accept $x, because I won't as I already have a much better offer from Company B. I think the prudent thing to do is to share a revised compensation expectation with Company A, but I’m nervous that I’ll seem wishy-washy. I have the final round interview for Company A in a week. Do I go through the interview and then disclose the revised salary expectations after, or do I disclose right away? Please share thoughts.
