How do you include salary history on a resume and/or cover letter?
How do you include a salary history on a functional-based resume/cover letter? I am enclosing the job description with the question: http://www.sdmart.org/info-jobs.html#paid and click on Visitor Services Associate. I am also curious to know if I should try for the job anyway even if I'm not proficient in MS Outlook. I'm not but I am more than willing to become proficient at it. Thanks for any help and/or suggestions. NOTE: After clicking on Visitor Services Assoc., scroll down to the actual job description!

Don't, it only becomes a wall. See you are telling them this is what you work for. Get hired, once hired discuss salary or pay. Once you know they want you. You are the boss and you are deciding with them what you are willing to work for. But until then do not limit your self.
