Salary on CV?
« on: January 08, 2017, 05:27:20 PM »

I know a lot of application forms ask you to put your salary on them, but should you be doing it on your CV?

Also, if an employer asks you your current or previous salary (during an interview) how can you avoid telling them? I've always felt that outright refusing to answer would leave a bad impression.

I think there may be some careers which putting your salary on your CV may be a good thing (I thinking along the lines of performance based commissions, etc) but on the whole I don't think it's a great idea.

For most people, it's extra information that's largely irrelevant to your work history - CV's get cluttered enough without excessive information.

I've also had interviewers asking my past / current salary - I'm not really sure how to avoid the question to be honest! Maybe someone else can offer advice on that!
