10 Salary Negotiation Myths

Don't Let These Common Mistakes Cost You When Negotiating a Job Offer

Myth #5: You Must Disclose Your Current Salary

This is one of the most common questions when people talk about negotiation. It often comes up early in the interviewing process as companies try to screen out candidates through an online form or an initial interview. While there are several ways to evade the question, the best answer is to not be in this position at all. Up to 80% of jobs are found through networking, so it is much more advantageous to try and steer your resume to a hiring manager through a connection vs. battling thousands of candidates applying online.
