One of the most heated debates on my blog in 2009 happened on the post called Your Thoughts: Candidates, Salary, and Disclosure.
- Nick Corcodilos, of Ask the Headhunter, advises you to never disclose your salary to a recruiter or company during your job search.
- Dave Hardwick disagreed — and he asked for my two cents.
- BN Carvin weighed in on the comments with her opinion. She basically moderated Punk Rock HR for a week!
I lost control of my blog, but it was a good debate. I wonder if you have any additional thoughts on this subject? Were you part of the original debate and changed your mind?
I’ll never talk about my salary history again. I will talk about my salary demands. I want a variable compensation package. Cash. Cats. Bacon. I’m open to discussing the mix.
