I currently work for a large blue-chip IT company as a technical consultant, and have been sought by a recruiter for a similar role in another organisation.
Before they'll arrange an interview, he says he needs current salary details and salary "expectations" for the new role. This seems odd to me; I can just about understand the expectations, but current salary he has no way to verify anyway (I assume).
I'm keen on the role, but want to proceed with caution (I don't need it). Is it normal to have this information requested at this stage? If I push back, I wonder if I will be seen as uncooperative.
