Why do I need to include my recent salary?

The Recent Salary on the Job Preferences page allows us to send you only the most relevant matches and allows you to see positions within a targeted range around your Recent Salary and Desired Salary when searching on the site.

Your most recent salary is not shared with Recruiters.  

You can set the range you prefer to be shown on your Job Preferences page:

Job Preferences 

Scroll down to the section titled "What you're looking for" and click "Edit" :


Once you click "Edit" you will be able to select an appropriate Minimum and Maximum salary range in the Recent and Desired Compensation fields, respectfully, 


Once you are satisfied with your selection, you can click "Save". Your Recommended jobs, Job Searches, and Emails will be catered to you based on these selections.
