I am having my "Final" interview with the Divisional Hiring Officer at UBS this week. The original job post I responded to mentioned a salary range of $80-125k. Maybe a little about me is in order. I have never actually had a salary before. For the last 8 years I have been a futures and options broker. 5 of those years I owned my own firm. I got tired of constantly having to replace clients that were blown up. At any rate I earned the top of their salary range the first year I was a broker. Obviously every year after that has been better. I want to eventually just be straight commission, but my expenses are higher than the top of $125K.... wife, kid, boat, mortgage etc. I am willing to dip into my savings until my production catches up. I do however feel that as a proven producer I should be offered the top of their range. Any advice on how to convey this? Also are these higher starting ranges that are designed to bring over experienced professionals from other fields starting to become the norm? I noticed in other posts that many were offered signifigantly less. Thanks for any input.
