Dodge the Ball

Learn how to politely decline questions asked by recruiters that may impact your compensation negotiation with the company down the road.

Most recruiters would want to know your current salary. This gives them an estimate of what financial compensation (among other factors) would motivate you to make a change. Some companies factor in your current compensation when making an offer, while others don’t. The practice varies across the industry with no set rules. Recently, some states in the US have outlawed asking for current compensation from potential candidates.
