Red Flags Don’t Turn Green
In @jmfayard’s opinion, the “what’s your current salary” interview question is a red flag and an illegitimate question. Super interesting and valuable read!

OMG!! This was not expected.
I'm happy and grateful that my article on "What's your current salary?" has hit a nerve like this.
I can write words, but it's only if people share that kind of information and use it during the job interviews that things can start to change!
Hey, that was unexpected!
Thanks, Gracie. And good job everyone 🎉🎉🎉
Wow much appreciated I did not see this coming thanks!
Thanks for reading 😊
