Should you have to share your salary history? No, but try explaining that to many hiring managers -- or getting out of the conversation without tanking your chances at getting the job.
It can be a daunting prospect to negotiate your salary. Discussions about money can feel awkward or taboo, but it’s important not to let that stop you from asking for what you feel is fair and deserved. If you don’t negotiate, even for an entry-level job, you could be missing out on hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of your career.
