The irony of this question is that I amd others have occasionally had to
lie by understating our qualifications for a new job. If, at some time in
your career, you can grasp only at jobs paying two-thirds of your normal
rate, demanding that ormal rate is almost certain to disqualify you
immediately. If you want (need, that is) the job and are willing to take the
cut temporarily, you must understate your demand and past salary. I did it
when I came to Maryland from hiladelphia years ago. How many others have
been in a similar situation? - Herm
