As for the more senior position, just tell them that you saw this job ad and would like to be considered for the position.
Thanks for the advice!

My current employer is doing annually increament like every other company but for myself I had an additional half-year review due to some add-on project work that increased my responsibility and workload. It is very rare so I didn't have it in mind when applying for jobs and filling up forms.

I think I'm gonna wait for their official offer first and then put up the request but probably not too aggressively.

Default expected salary: then and now

Hi,
the expected salary you indicated at the time of interview - 3 months ago- was accurate then. If matters have cahnged along the way, you can ask for more.

I once applied for a job. HR came back to me after a year and wanted to negotiate based on figures that were already stail.

thanks for the advice.

they contact you for the same job after a year? I thought they were just being polite saying the resume will remain in their system for a year and stuff.
