Why do they ask.
Do job other stub your current net rotten of your out-of-date stipend?
At my last job i be only making 35,000, but it was an entry plane position (which I worked for three years) and i didn't have my degree when i started. The tentative job that i went to an interview on asked for my end salary, but i was awkward. The new job pays between 45,000 and 55,000. Should I be worried that i will grasp the lower end because of my last pay?
In view of the Global recession and very unhappy job market, i suggest that you should seize the New job, although the offer is on lower side. The brief market is expected to come out of recession after 2 years. You can try your luck then.
