But can you share what is your last salary? Just want to know how much jump difference you got.

just quote high number. hr is not going to laugh at you or reject you just because your number is higher than their range.

my prev salary high 4k. at first they only want to offer me 7k+. then I tell them another company offering me 9k. then they jitao change and say they can offer 8k+ but with bonus and everything so should match close to my 9k offer

Pro tip - when asked for current salary, flat out refuse, and cite their very own Jo Teo's words. This one I did

Pro tip 2 - when asked for expected, try to refuse, or if cannot, just give a very high amount, in order for HR to assess ur package based purely on skills and competencies from the interviews. Otherwise, if it is lower than what they preliminarily assessed, i.e. what they expect, they may choose to bump down your grade just to match ur expected.
Hi, can elaborate more on this? why progression will lag even with adjustments? So a G with 10yrs exp should roughly expect how much? you are SE?

D (fresh grad) to G usually takes 4 to 5 years to hit. If you got offered G for years exp then you got lowballed hard and HR must be thinking "good deal"!
