where the salary was quite a bit lower than what I had previously earned, and the interviewer asked me if I would be willing to accept the lower pay. I don’t think I did a good job answering that question, but by that point in the interview, I had already decided the job wasn’t a good fit for me.
I don’t like disclosing my salary history to anyone, but every interview I’ve been to has required me to complete an application in addition to my resume, and that’s always one of the questions.
At least I learned to have a better answer to the lower-salary question.
