“It is wonderful to see job-seekers waking up to realize they have more power in the hiring equation than they thought they did.
Employers can’t grow their businesses without great employees on board.
Job-seekers need to know that there are lots of badly-managed organizations that treat job-seekers like dirt. Almost everyone has run into one of those organizations at some point.
The faster you run away from organizations (and recruiters) who treat you badly, the sooner you’ll find the right people to collaborate with!
Don’t give up your current or past salary details just because someone asks you to. What you get paid now and what you got paid at every job you’ve ever held is your personal information — and nobody else’s business.
Recruiters will ask for your salary history and so will employers. If you run into the question ‘What did your past jobs pay?’ on an online job application, here’s how to handle it.”
