All right, so I am currently employed, and I'm looking for some new opportunities. I found two companies - in one I'm waiting for a decision after 2nd tech interview, in the second I have passed everything and got the "offer-interview" scheduled this week. I'll talk about the second:
During the very first hr talk I made a mistake and told too low salary requirements - let's say 5k$/month. I would want 6k$/month instead. I got to the final stage now, they even called me to confirm the salary, I did. I have a final interview scheduled now, yet I still have to inform them about this salary increase.
The job advertisement for this position has very high salary range - let's say 8k$ - 14k$/month. It's very high for the location, that's why I was aiming lower (which is still pretty high). It's also a big international corporation.
So - how should I approach informing them about my salary requirements increase? Should I call them before the interview, or tell about it face to face? Should I tell them that I have a counter offer, and that's where my increase come from? How does my situation look like?
