Recruiters and The Salary Question

· Compensation,Recruiting

How to respond to recruiters demanding to know your salary history.


Dear People Ops:

Recently I've had recruiters ask what I currently make. I've heard I'm suppose to get a company to say their number first. Is that right? How do you deal with answering this question?

Repeat after me: "I deserve to be paid like the baller I am". Don't stop saying it until you really mean it. Because getting paid what you deserve is sometimes a fight, and you need to be ready to advocate for yourself.........
