Salary History Example

This salary history example states exact starting and ending salaries for each job, rounded to the nearest whole number.

Although this salary history example states exact figures, ballpark ranges will do, unless an employer specifically requests that you provide exact figures. Still, rounding figures up or down to the nearest whole number is exact enough.

However, it's a good idea to resist the urge to "beef up" your salary history, in an attempt to get a raise for a new job you're trying to land.

Be aware that, during employment background checks, employers with whom you're interviewing might double-check your earnings with your former employers.

Besides, you might inadvertently price yourself out of contention for a new job, before you even get a chance to sell yourself enough to land the raise you want.

See Salary History Samples for the version of this example plus several others (such as one that states ballpark ranges) that you may download for free and edit for personal use.

We've also included free example salary history letters for politely sidestepping employer and recruiter requests for same.
