5 Ways Your Resume Can Command a Higher Salary

Salary Negotiations Begin With Your Resume, Not the Job Offer

1. Don't Discuss Salary Too Soon

Ok, so I have given you tips of what you should state in a resume to get paid more. But ironically, the one thing you should definitely NOT discuss is salary. Don't talk about it in your application, cover letter, or resume. Figure out if you want to work there and if they want you, and then ease into the salary discussion.

Remember, an employer wants to see drive for something, other than financial benefit.
