Thinking about a new career in 2017? Here’s a tip: When you’re out there interviewing, experts say there’s one question you should not answer under any circumstances.
You should never tell a potential employer your previous salary. Offering that information puts you at a huge disadvantage when it comes time to negotiate your salary.
This is actually a hot button topic and politicians in Massachusetts and New York are working to pass laws to ban companies from even asking.
Whether a law comes through or not, just dodge the question. It’s none of their business.
And, good luck job shopping to you. (MarketWatch)
