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!

I think you shouldn't avoid that question, but here salary questions asked in HR round so you don't have any option to avoid is Career Advice about what to avoid and what not to.

Hi there! I find your question really important, because I have faced with such issues before as well J
But I would like to add that there is no one unique rule about writing the salary in your CV, because it is up to you. And also you can always just correctly refuse to tell your previous salary J
