Salary Expectations(CTC) In Resume.. CiteHR

surbhitaneja Started The Discussion:

Dear Friends and seniors

I would like to know under which heading in the resume, we should write about our current CTC, Expected CTC, Joing Period, Relocation Preference, Valid Passport ....

Generally when we apply online, then they ask ask to revert our updated resume with the above said items. I want to know whether we shud answer these things in a reply to the mail itself and send our resume as it is or whether we shud hv a sepate heading in the resume with these details included. Kindly tell me the apt place in resume to include these details or how the HR's expect us to furnish the above details???

Thanking u in advance. Plz share ur experience and ideas.

Dear Surbhi,

Never mention irrelevant things in your Resume. Keep your Resume Short and Crisp. Why do you wish to expose your present CTC, moreover why do you wish to earmark expected CTC.

Even if there is a column where it is mentioned expected CTC , my advise is always write NEGOTIABLE.
