Should I state that the compensation is too low even though I don't have an offer yet?
- Found by recruiter on linkedIn due to MT advice. Called by recruiter and asked for resume.
- MT resume got me an interview with 'head' recruiter.
- I currently have a second interview schedule with the recruiter and the hiring manager.
In the interview with the recruiter we discussed compensation. I know the salary and have been told there is a bonus. No detail on the bonus was available. While the salary is larger than my current, after researching cost of living plus the negative of uprooting family I doubt I would accept unless the target bonus is 25% or greater of base salary. I do not work in an industry where this type of bonus is typical and expect I would have to turn DOWN an offer.
I would hate to waste the recruiters time further as I may have need of this recruiter in the future, either for my career or to find other candidates!
