How do you list salary history on a resume?
Generally speaking, an individuals salary history does not belong on a resume. Prospective candidates for a job do not normally speak about this subject and also, a recruiter during an interview will rarely if ever speak about the salary history of a possible employee during an interview.

Including salary history with resumes:
- The easiest way to create a salary history is to open your resume file in your word processing program and save it as a new document (e.g. YourName_salaryhistory.doc). Leave in the heading that contains your name and contact information so the salary history layout matches your resume layout. Next, remove all sections other than your work history, leaving in employer names, dates and job titles. Below each position, add in one or two of your top accomplishments, followed by your total compensation, including bonuses, stock options, tips and benefits. You may also include starting and ending salaries for each position in which your salary increased. Title your page "Confidential Salary History."
- Another way is to include your starting salary and ending salary in your job description. For example, I did . . .starting salary $20,000 a year, ending salary $30, 0000 a year.
- Many employers now require a salary history to be included along with your resume. It is only then that you should provide this information before a face-to-face interview. Do this in a separate document; never within the resume. You do not have to be specific about what you made- for example, you can state that you made "in the 30's." If you are asked for your expected salary, provide the minimum you know you can accept, but consider stating that this is negotiable.
- Only give salary details if expressly asked to do so.
- Unless a resume is required with salary history, ie. you know it won't be read unless it's there, don't include it. The company may be willing to pay a much higher salary than you previously received; by listing former salaries you just ace yourself out of that higher salary. Some human resources interviewers may pass over your resume if they think you received too low a salary for your previous job, no matter how fancy the title or responsible the position. You can always answer the question of how much you received at your last job when face to face with the interviewer after you have impressed him/her with your intelligence, charisma and charm. FYI: Always know your potential employer's business from top to bottom. Knowing company history and management names is always a big plus!
- Salaries should never be included on resumes, but only discussed in person if and when you get an interview and are asked about your salary history. It is not standard practice in the business to include salary history on resumes and makes the resume seem unprofessional. It is confidential information. Please don't include it on a resume.

NO ! That would not be needed at all.
No, not an address per se but I would state the referree, company name & contact number - that should suffice. Giving them a list separately, say at the interview, is quite ac…ceptable as most people will say "Names of referrees available on request" You should only put your reference's contact numbers for further questions. Not their addresses and if you want their addresses be in your resume, you should ask their permission first.
Yes, you want to make sure you list seminars on your resume so you can look good for potential employers. You can also include any awards you have received.
1. Communication skills - Excellent communication skills are the number one thing that employers and interviewers look for in a candidate. These can be either verbal or …written communication skills but you must be able to prove that you can communicate and work alongside others in an excellent manner. 2. Honesty and integrity - This is the 2nd most important thing interviewers and employers look for in a person, so it is worthwhile to remember this during the interview process and make sure that any answers you give to questions you answer honestly as you may be caught out later during the interview if asked the same question in a roundabout way. 3. Teamwork skills - These are another important asset you must have, preferably you will have backed up any claims you make regarding teamwork in your resume with a portfolio, you can then present the portfolio during the interview showing and confirming previous experiences you have had with teamwork skills. 4. Interpersonal skills - You must be able to prove your interpersonal skills to the interviewer or employer during the interview, skills such as working alongside others, being able to evaluate and accept responsibility, make team work more efficient and identifying methods used when dealing with conflicts. 5. Strong work ethic - you must be able to prove that you are willing to go beyond the call of duty for your employer and that you are willing to give them 100% commitment to the company and the job. 6. Motivation and initiative - You should give examples during your interview to get across that you are willing to show imitative and can show motivation when left to your own devices. 7. Flexibility and adaptable - Give examples from previous positions that show your adaptability to situations that can arise and that show you are able to be flexible and not stuck in a rut. 8. Analytical skills - try to give examples showing off your analytical skills backing up claims with your portfolio during the interview, employers and recruiters look for ways that you have been able to analyse and clearly identify problems. 9. Computer skills - With today's modern technology focusing on the use of computers excellent computer skills and understanding of various types of software are essential, try to prove you are literate in the use of computers and software in your resume or portfolio. 10. Organisational skills - You will have to prove that you are able to organise in a quick and clear manner and show that you are not afraid to take charge of a situation and find a solution. This again can be shown in your resume or portfolio with examples from previous jobs.
Money values \n. \nResumes should be clear, but also concise, so they can be read quickly and easily. For numbers, then, use the term that allows the numbers to be read at …a glance: $500K, not $500,000.00, and $1M, not $1,000,000. Generally, cent amounts ($0.00) are not relevant, so you can omit them entirely and round up or down to whole numbers. Clare Keating for 3C Communications Consulting Group
Answer Include it on the cover letter. Answer Don't. Say "Negotiable". If you write down a figure they will use it to weed you out. Salary… history is much better.
As many as you want! But make sure that the jobs you list are relevant in some way or another... And Don't forget to keep your resume under 2 pages.. any more than 2… and the person reading it will not bother!!
Can a employer find out your previous employment history even though it was not listed on your resume?
Answer yes throughy your ssn If an employer can find it thru my ssn, how can I find it so I can properly fill out an application or my resume?
Normally, Education is listed at the end of a resume. You really only need to list your most recently completed level unless:. (A) you are currently attending an academic pro…gram - then you list the current program followed by the previously completed program - MIT, currently attending Masters in Engineering program, 2005 - Present; Drexel University, BS Engineering, 2005; or,. (B) if you have graduate degrees, you would list the most recent first and end with your undergraduate program - PHD Economics, Harvard, 2005; MBA, University of Pennsylvania, 2002; BA Accounting, Rutgers, 2000.
You should start with your current or most recent job and work backwards from there
No. If the company is interested in you (your resume) then during the interview they will either tell you what the job pays, or will ask at that time what your desired salary …is. Don't sell yourself short, but don't forget how many people would be willing to take that same job for less pay, either.. But you can be prepared to negotiate, depending on how badly you want that particular job, or how badly you need a job, period. Just be realistic in the pay you ask for, and be honest in your skills and qualifications for the job(s) you apply for.
The answer to this question depends on how many jobs you have had! Keep in mind that a resume should be no longer than 2 pages. You only have so much space, so you need to kee…p it short if you have had a long job history. Also bear in mind that if you are applying for a specific job or type of position, some of your job history may be irrelevant. Leave it off your resume unless it demonstrates how good you will be for the new job you are applying for. If you don't have a lot of job experience, you will probably find yourself listing all the jobs you've had, whether they are relevant or not. Do your best to make the skills you learned at those jobs relevant to the new job you want. For example, if you worked at a convenience store, you can highlight that you have customer service skills and experience handling cash.
Most resume how to information neglects the importance of resume skills. Your resume skills should reflect your ability to do the job that you're applying for; in other words,… tell the employer that you have the resume skills they are asking for in the ad. Then, take inventory of your own skills and include these skills on your resume. You should also back up your resume skills with fact wherever possible. Don't just say you were the best at something, show why you were the best. Answer To do this, find ads for the job you are interested in. Make a list of your skills and experiences that match each of the desired skills the ad requires. Use this information to put your resume together. These days, many places require an application. That is easier to do--in each job space, put as much detail as you can about your experience and skills that relate to the job posting. I learned how to do this from a book called "Competency-Based Interviews, by Robin Kessler. I found it at the library. By the way, there is no "perfect" resume. Just make sure yours is nicely typed, that EVERYTHING is spelled correctly, with your name, address and contact information at the top.

You first decide how much money you want to make and then write something like: I would like to make between US$ 18,000 and US$ 24,000 after taxes. Many people choose to writ…e the word "Negotiable" in that field. However, most employers would rather know what your expectations are.
Yes.. It will add more value to your resume if you mention about the extracurricular activities. This should be included towards the end of the resume as you will be cover…ing your area of expertise in the first few pages. This will make a difference while you apply for a job
