In the past 14 days I have received 90 recruiter messages.
Only three mentioned a salary, two of which were below market rate and equivalent to a 30% to 50% pay cut.
Only one, Madelyn Rainey whom I totally owe a follow-up email too, actually read my profile. Somebody who is totally worth knowing.
Of the 90 messages received, 67 were for junior to mid-level roles (1 to 4 years of experience), or front-end web development roles.
Of the 87 messages that did not have a slary range, after I enquired about compensation with succinct: “What’s the compensation range for this role?”
74 didn’t respond at all when I asked about compensation range. I was “ghosted” as they like to say.
10 asked me what I was looking for. Evaded and answered with a question. And then still didn’t respond when I asked again.
3 responded with a compensation range that was… a 20% to 50% pay cut.
In that same time frame we’ve interviewed five candidates for open vacancies and don’t have enough hours in the day right now to interview more.
