What should I tell my recruiter about salary?
If it's an employer asking — the hiring manager, the HR manager, the HR recruiter or the company's online application form — do not disclose your salary, ever. If it's a headhunter or third party recruiter, disclose your salary only if: The headhunter agrees not to disclose it to the employer. No exceptions.
Do you have to tell recruiter your current salary?
“Don't offer salary history in an initial written application. “At this point, instead of telling the employer your current or past salary, ask what range they expect to pay for the position. You could also offer to provide your desired salary range.” This response doesn't always work favourably though.
