Generally speaking, an individuals salary history does not belong on a resume. Prospective candidates for a job do not normally speak about this subject and also, a recruiter during an interview will rarely if ever speak about the salary history of a possible employee during an interview.
Including salary history with resumes:
  • The easiest way to create a salary history is to open your resume file in your word processing program and save it as a new document (e.g. YourName_salaryhistory.doc). Leave in the heading that contains your name and contact information so the salary history layout matches your resume layout. Next, remove all sections other than your work history, leaving in employer names, dates and job titles. Below each position, add in one or two of your top accomplishments, followed by your total compensation, including bonuses, stock options, tips and benefits. You may also include starting and ending salaries for each position in which your salary increased. Title your page "Confidential Salary History."
  • Another way is to include your starting salary and ending salary in your job description. For example, I did . . .starting salary $20,000 a year, ending salary $30, 0000 a year.
  • Many employers now require a salary history to be included along with your resume. It is only then that you should provide this information before a face-to-face interview. Do this in a separate document; never within the resume. You do not have to be specific about what you made- for example, you can state that you made "in the 30's." If you are asked for your expected salary, provide the minimum you know you can accept, but consider stating that this is negotiable.
 Other answers:
  • Only give salary details if expressly asked to do so.
  • Unless a resume is required with salary history, ie. you know it won't be read unless it's there, don't include it. The company may be willing to pay a much higher salary than you previously received; by listing former salaries you just ace yourself out of that higher salary. Some human resources interviewers may pass over your resume if they think you received too low a salary for your previous job, no matter how fancy the title or responsible the position. You can always answer the question of how much you received at your last job when face to face with the interviewer after you have impressed him/her with your intelligence, charisma and charm. FYI: Always know your potential employer's business from top to bottom. Knowing company history and management names is always a big plus!
  • Salaries should never be included on resumes, but only discussed in person if and when you get an interview and are asked about your salary history. It is not standard practice in the business to include salary history on resumes and makes the resume seem unprofessional. It is confidential information. Please don't include it on a resume.
