I have been recently approached by a recruiter from another company. I agreed to go through recruitment proccess and at the begining I have stated my expected salary which I set pretty high.
On the other hand I like my current job very much for various reasons, so if my rate would be accepted I would want first to renegotiate my compensation in current job.
Now my question is: If a recruiter from the new company would offer me the salary I asked for in the first place, should I tell them that first I will try to renegotiate my current salary? Or should I just say that I need some time to think about it? (which I don't really like because if I got raise in my current job it would seem as if I wasted recruiters time since they agreed to my terms)
