Salary History:

In most cases, individuals resist providing this kind of information to prospective employers. Usually it is desirable to leave this topic open until an offer has been extended, but some employers will view not providing this information as "not following instructions" if indeed it was requested in the application process. In other cases, a "Salary Range" might be requested. This is different from a "Salary History", in that the prospective employer is looking for some parameters in terms of your actual salary expectations. To demonstrate the most flexibility and to create the most options, you will want to identify a dollar amount that ranges several thousand dollars. Think about the realistic amount you are shooting for and phrase in actual dollars ($30,000 to $35,000) or articulate it in words (Lower to middle thirties). Note: Either a "Salary History" or "Salary Requirements" can be incorporated into the body of a cover letter. Also a "Salary History" can be incorporated into a resume relative to each employer/position identified. Below are two formats for posting your "Salary History", separately from your resume. Your Name Street · City · State · Zip Code Phone # · Fax phone # · Email Salary History Company Name Address Line 1 Address Line 2 Main Phone Number Optional Web Site Address Annual Salary or Starting and Ending Salary or Company Name Address Line 1 Address Line 2 Job Title: Work dates: 00/00/00 to 00/00/00 Ending salary: $


Professional references are usually identified on a separate sheet (unless you choose to use it to fill the remainder of your less than full second page) and should include the following information: Name of Reference, Title, Place of employment, Address of employer and Contact information (phone and/or email). Make sure the page clearly identifies that these are references for yourself, and should be provided only if requested. The most important note is to make sure that you ask these individuals (usually 3-5) if they will act as reference for you, before you create the list. Choose your references with care; do they know your strengths and weaknesses, have they seen you demonstrate your skills and are they articulate?
