I am a business analysis/BI manager at a small-to-medium sized company that has seen huge international growth. I progressed here since finishing my higher education and have built some seniority, although there are certain factors that are making the job less enjoyable than when I started (change in management, restructuring, stifled career development) most importantly the salary is low compared to rest of the industry.
Doing a search online, the average salary for jobs that match or are even lower responsibility than my current profile pay nearly double my job.
I think this is partly due to the fact that the company grew from scratch rather than being an established one, and I know many others have left and got much higher salaries.
One of the main reasons I want to leave is thus salary. As I emphasized in my other question, I have numerous problems in my life that make it paramount for me to significantly increase my income. I am just a bit unsure whether I will be able to get the full potential, or if recruiters and HR will calculate my new job salary by taking into account my previous salary.
What is the best I can do to ensure my next job salary will not be reduced due to my current one?
I fear that at some point during interviewing, I will be asked what my current salary is and that might be used as a basis for their offer.
