How long has it been? I had a recent applicant for a position paying $53-59,000 as shown on the job announcement. Her salary requirement was $80,000, so I rejected her. By the time HR sends our standard rejection letter it may be 2-3 weeks later.

Love it. Hardball nogotiating.

When I am negotiating a salary I will say I know what salaries have been posted on the Internet. Are those accurate? That forces them to tell me the range. Then I go high on my salary requirement and negotiate from there.

If they will not pay what I am asking for then we just professionally end our conversation unless I want to dig up some industry inside info.
