My previous employer declared bankruptcy and was closed. My salary in this company was very high as I was holding a top management position (Chief Technology Officer).
I have passed all technical interviews and tests with another company for the position of Technical Manager, and I will have the final HR interview to discuss the financial issues in the next few days. I know that the pay-scale for the Technical Manager position is something around 60% of my last salary and I am fine with this.
- From an HR perspective, shall I tell them about my last salary (if they ask about it)?
- Do you think it would affect my chances for hiring if I was getting a higher salary in my previous work?
