    • Sometimes the last salary we draw from our ex company is quite high. In that case, should we write down our last drawn salary in our resume?

       

      Because if we write, some companies see your last drawn salary so high than they don't even ask you to come for interview.

       

      But sometimes cannot don't write also because some job advertisements state that you should indiciate your last drawn salary, reason for leaving, date of availability etc.

       

      Or if we know we are applying for a much lower salary job than maybe we should lie and write our last drawn salary lower?

      haha dun put better. unless the company ask.

      it's best to be as ambiguous as possible, so u can be flexible. if u "show hand" so early in the game, you cannot "bluff"

    • most prospective employers will still ask for the latest payslip from ur present/ last employer to be given to the interviewers on the day of the interview...
