You Still Can’t Dodge The Salary Question (Here’s How To Answer)
Most job seekers dread talking to recruiters and employers about salary. In many states it’s illegal to ask candidates about their current salary. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be asked about your expectations.
The truth is, you can’t completely 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.
