Leonard Porrello writ:
>>I like your idea of not submitting salary information. But I am
curious about what you say to get around the request. Please tell.<<

I write something like this:

"Your ad asked for my [salary history/salary requirements]. I prefer not
to share that information this soon. After we've had a chance to
establish mutual interest, I'll be happy to discuss salary with you."

I imagine this turns some employers off. My company's boilerplate job
ad includes a blurb about sharing salary requirements. I know how *I*
react when someone writes something like this: "No problem."

Same goes when someone doesn't want to send me samples with the resume.
I do understand that some work is proprietary, that some people prefer
to show samples in person, and so on. A plainly worded explanation
covers it for me.

Peace,
jim
