Most job seekers dread being asked about their salary. Some are uncomfortable revealing personal information. Many are concerned that sharing their current salary will influence potential job offers.
The truth is, you can’t dodge the salary question.***
But, to some degree you can control it. You do this by understanding the process and being prepared.
Why do recruiters ask about your salary?
As a former recruiter, I know they don’t ask your salary requirements to put you on the spot. They ask because they need to know if you are in the salary range for the position they are filling. Remember, recruiters don’t work for you, they work for the employer.
