Comprehensive article @aershov24 , nicely articulated! From my experience, even I've found that not disclosing your required compensation until the last rounds helps in a couple of ways:

  1. You don't come across as just overzealous and money-minded (not many intend to be, either)

  2. Provided you've had a good experience in the interviews, the ball is now in a prospective employer's court and depending on their need - you could use the salary discussions as your trump card :D

Since most interactions tend to happen via email nowadays, I've found these articles post1 and post2 to be helpful. Hoping they prove useful for the community too.
