For job openings that don’t ask for salary requirements, you shouldn’t offer the information before the interview, says Rick Gillis, author of the book “Job!: Learn How to Find Your Next Job In 1 Day.”
“Quite often, a salary can be a killer right off the bat,” Gillis tells us. “[The employer is thinking] ‘You’re asking too much money, so I’m not going to call you,’ or ‘I can’t afford you right off the bat.’ “
In our interview below, Gillis also discusses why you shouldn’t provide a salary range when negotiating and never accepting the first offer.
