I get requests/offers from IT headhunters from time to time. Now, a headhunter called me an "expert" in my field. I'm maybe a senior, but not an expert. I'm unsure how to handle this, and I don't want to lose a potentially awesome opportunity.
Can I request an "expert"-salary and can I act like an "expert" in a potential job interview ? Or is it just a normal thing that headhunters call everybody "expert" to get warm with them ?
The headhunter has an IT background and seems to be highly educated (Bachelor/Master) in Marketing.
