I am looking for a job change and I am attending interviews mostly through Phone.
As far as my industry standards, I am getting low salary from my current employer when I compare myself to my friends who are working as my same role. I tried to give the following reasons when the interviewer ask this question.
- I am currently in my native place where the cost of living is lower than the city where I am going to work.
- My current employer is willing to pay me the salary which is lower than my expected salary.
I have posted my profile in job portals where we have to specify current CTC. So the recruiters knew my current CTC.
How to explain more effectively when the new recruiters asking this question?
I am very much depressed with my current salary.
I am from southern part of India.
