I work at a very large software company in a senior position, but I'm looking to move to the next level.
Recently (last week) I was contacted by a recruiter for a specific position as well as help in finding candidates for another position. I knew this recruiter when he worked for my LOB and was effective at getting us some great candidates. He mentioned that he is "on retainer" for the company who he was representing this postion to me.
Here's where I may or may not have pulled the Whoops:
1. I told him my current base salary
2. I was a bit flustered and might have come across as flighty
But he did send me a very raw position and company description and mentioned me as the "benchmark" for this position and he has seen me in senior executive meetings both presenting and contributing. I already had his contact info.
How can I get back on track?
