"Never be so sure of what you want that you wouldn't take something better" - Chris Voss
There's always the part of the interview process where expectations around salary/ote come up. For my last two jobs, I employed a new strategy for getting what I wanted. Rather than telling the hiring manager my expectations, I volunteered "what I'm making now" freely. What the interviewer couldn't know is that I'd inflated my current salary by $20K.
Clever right? Wrong.
Several weeks in I was grabbing a beer with another AE and the topic of salary came up. Turns out I'd sold myself $10K short of what their normal offer was.
Moral of the story: Make them throw out numbers first.
