This question already has an answer here:
Currently underpaid for the role I do, job advertisements for a similar role have a going rate of double of what I am on.
Whenever I tell potential employers what I am earning per annum, I am finding that they end up offering me less or in some instances think that I must not be very good since I am earning well below the market rate. The reason why I am underpaid is because I am currently working for a tech start up with limited capital.
Should I lie at job interviews about the amount of money I am earning as a way to get around this?
