Well, I'll never leave it to the end after a phone call I had last week. A recruiter called me and wanted to know if I was interested in a job yada yada yada.  We spoke for about 20 minutes before he finally revealed the pay rate was $21 an hour on a 1099.  From now on I'll try to be tactful about it but discussing the pay comes first.

I always start by asking this question.  First thing to do in sales is
to qualify your lead -- make sure that your customer (in this case, the
employer) can actually afford what you're selling (yourself).

I've avoided wasting much time going through rigorous interview
processes with employers that would never pay me what I'm looking for --
it's win-win for both sides to get the money issue out of the way up front.

It actually stuns me how often I hear people leaving that conversation
until the very *end* ... makes no sense to me.
