Additionally, in some job ads, the company will ask for specific information to be included in your cover letter.
There are several sites that have compiled census and other data information to give you a decent estimate of salaries by position in specific cities and states So if the average salary of your job is K for the location where you live (or want to live), list your salary requirements as K to K.
Again, no salary information should be included in a resume.
Recruiters receive thousands of unqualified resumes for every position.
They will look at your resume and cover letter and immediately trash them if they don’t see a fit — assuming that you are another one of those annoying applicants who applies for every job posted.
