Cover Letter with Salary Requirement

Most professional job postings request that a resume or cover letter with salary requirement be submitted when applying for the position. Often, in addition to disclosing a salary requirement a history of previous salaries will be asked for as well. The first rule to follow when submitting a cover letter with salary requirement is that is the job posting or advertisement does not ask for salary information, do not provide any. All salary information is best broached by the potential employer at his or her chosen time.
