can I include the value of my benefits when I talk about my current salary?
Ask A Manager
OCTOBER 3, 2013
On the application, it asks for my salary history. I accepted my current job in 2011 in a terrible economy and know that I’m overqualified for it based on my experience and education. My entire compensation with benefits is approximately $6k higher than my actual salary (by itself). Plus, if they verify your salary with your employer (which many do), they’ll realize you misled them. salary
