My Salary?? Sorry, it's none of your business

I would like to advocate for 'salary-history privacy', which is the number 1 question every employer is keen to understand. Each interview, irrespective of the position/level demands to know the current salary of the individual who is keen on a job change

I fail to understand why is it given critical importance. What rights does an employer have to know the current salary status of an applicant before he could convert to an employee of the hiring firm. Every company has a strict policy towards their employees who discuss their compensation plan with each other. They discourage employees from sharing their salary information amongst their own employees. So why this unfair term while just interviewing an new applicant?


Your past salaries are nobody's business but yours. Your compensation rate at previous jobs should play no part in the process of deciding whether to interview you, whether to hire you or how much to pay you.

Employers have no reason to require a job-seeker…

Have a Job Interview coming up ? Try These. . .

Studies show with over two hundred applications coming in on average for a new job posting, only a mere 2-4 applicants get selected for an in-person interview. That's a 3% chance you'll get picked.

With studies showing you have just a 3% chance of getting a call for an interview, wouldn't you want to increase the likelihood you succeed in the so you can get the job offer? There's a lot of preparation that goes into nailing interviews.

Regardless of your age or experience level, nailing the interview can be challenging. The only way to "win" at job interviewing is to prepare yourself effectively. 

However, if you're unsure of the right approach, you're not alone. Many people struggle during job interviews. Lack of confidence, preparation, and strategy can result in a painful and ineffective interview that doesn't make a great impression.
