A recent post on the “desired salary” interview question by HRNasty got me thinking about this question myself.
When it comes to salary, there are three numbers you should be able to share with a recruiter:
1. What you make in your current role.
2. What you would like to make, based on current market rates or advancement in skills and education since you started your current role.
3. The bare minimum you’d be willing to accept to consider making a change (sometimes, less than your current salary depending on your circumstances).
