I got asked about current and expected salaries today in an online
application for a job at a company owned by a large corporation.
Luckily the "expected" section allowed multiple choices, so I was able
to specify a wide range in place of my usual "open."

It always seems odd to me when these online applications let you
upload a resume but not a cover letter.
