Member since: January 11, 2007 Total points: 445 (Level 2) Points earned this week: --% Best answer seafood10 S Should i lie about making less in order to get hire? my current job is an IT support analyst...providing basic technical support to traders, wealth management etc. i currently make $50k, plus $20k in bonus as of this year. im being laid off due to new ceo management and resturing...im applying to another investment as a desktop support. i dont think i will be making this much in another firm...probably around $40k-$50k. if they ask me how much i currently make, should i lie to them and say $45k and expect they will offer $50k. once again im not sure how much they are offering..im just guessing. so to conclude...should i lie to them im making less in order to have a good chance they will hire me. i do want to work for them since they sound like an exciting investment company. thx in advance.
