This question already has an answer here:

I have 9 years wide experience in operation management, profit management. My work and team work has always got very positive report from my management as it's always problem solving, deadline meeting and result oriented with strong ethics, process and leadership oriented.

However, in my career I never paid much concentration in salary negotiation, in reference to my skill my present salary is very low. At least a 50% hike is expected for the kind skills have been proved. What ever opening is coming all gets very surprise to see my present low salary in result no better salary are being worked out even after interviews are being cleared.

What can I do to get closer to my expected salary.

    Why do your opportunities know about your current salary? – Telastyn Feb 16 '13 at 13:01
  • I agree with Telastyn. When your opportunity asks how much is your current salary, can you say I rather not tell.? – scaaahu Feb 16 '13 at 13:16

    Stop ignoring the influence of negotiation on your career. Step one is easy - stop telling everyone you interview with what your current salary is. – enderland Feb 16 '13 at 16:06
  • "What can I do to get closer to my expected salary." = You ask to be paid the going rate, or you quit and find a place that does. – DA. Feb 16 '13 at 23:01

    Your current company can't afford the salary you can get elsewhere. It's not necesarily a reflection on you and a good reason to look for a new job. Usually 'more money' is not a good reason, a 50% discrepancy is an exception in my book. – user8365 Feb 17 '13 at 15:21
