For my initial phone call with this company, I was asked what salary I was looking for. I had seen advice around to put this off till the later stages, but the recruiter was adamant for this info so I relented.
Now, I'm in the final round and will be interviewing in person. I was asked to fill a general application which asked about some basic info about myself and work history. However, it also clearly asks for my current salary and my desired salary right next to it.
My current company is my first real job out of school and it was appropriate at the time, but it is much less than my desired and "market" rate for the position I'm applying for. I've been at my current company for 3 years and salary growth is insignificant. One of the main reason I'm leaving is because I feel my worth has surpassed my salary.
What should I do now in my situation? Should I leave the current salary blank? Should I fill it in?
