Never Put Your Asking Salary On Online Applications

Business Insider

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] 'Y ou'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 why you should never accept the first offer.
