In the spirit of Halloween we would like to address an answer to a question that tends to startle our recruiters.
The questions that evoke this scary answer:
“What were you making at your last job?”
“What is your current salary?”
The scary answer:
“I would rather not share that information.”
“Instead of telling you how much I’m making, how about I tell you what I’m looking for?”
In order for a recruiter to one, trust you, and two, help you find a job, you need to be honest and open with them.
- They are working to help you and without certain information it difficult to network on your behalf
- If you do not provide honest answers it’s hard to pin down the perfect opportunity for you
- All information is confidential. We only ask to better understand your past, present, and successful future

In good practice, every night about twenty minutes before the end of the day, my co-worker and I go over all that we completed, new tasks to take on tomorrow, and “to-dos” that were pushed to the wayside that weren’t a priority. We call these jumpers. These jumpers make it on to the next day’s agenda.
In an attempt to avoid jumpers, which are considered to-do list page fillers, we are taking a minimalistic approach to our to-do list.
If you have trouble completing all the to-do’s on your list – here are some rules to follow to minimalize your task list, get more done, and leave those jumpers behind until they become a priority.
