Salary History BEFORE Interview?
I'm hoping to harness the collective wisdom of these boards for guidance. I recently applied online for a fairly senior position. All the company has is my resume. Today I received an email from the VP of HR saying:
Can you please provide me with a complete salary history as well as current compensation expectations?
I look forward to hearing from you.
I'm cool with providing compensation expectations. But a complete salary history before I've even been invited to interview? It seems weird to me. Am I being unnecessarily squeamish?
And more important, can I respond providing one without the other? Any insight or advice welcome!!
