As is common these days, many job applications require you to list a minimum salary. I take that as the amount base salary I would need in order to meet my job level.
I have a PhD degree in science, and I clearly listed $90,000 as my minimum salary.
I went through the interview process 5 or 6 days; and lo and behold, 5 weeks later I finally get an offer, but at a baffling $60,000.
I'm at the offer stage, but it's likely that they would not match my salary request.
Why bother interviewing me knowing what I specifically stated in the pre employment application? Isn't that the point?
