How To Answer Salary Questions On Job Applications
by Shauna C. Bryce at workitdaily.com
You may be asked salary information on an application form, or be faced with a “current salary" or “desired salary" field on an online application. Or, you may be asked the same question by a legal recruiter. The answer you provide may be used in the screening process—answer too high and you may not be considered for the position at all.
This number will also likely come into play at the interview/offer stage. It can establish the range for the offer the employer makes. And if you're underpaid and undervalued at your current employer, then there's the risk that your low level of pay will follow you when you move on.
On a paper application form—or if the online form allows you to type in whatever you want—you can write “negotiable." This gives you the opportunity to discuss your salary history and expectations later.
