  • You’ve probably picked up on the fact that your CV is important by now. Whether you’ve been job hunting for a while, or are just leaving university, someone will have told you that your CV is everything.
  • Understandably, many people find discussing salaries uncomfortable and embarrassing during an interview. However, most interviewers expect some bartering and, if it motivates you to put more into the job, it is worthwhile for both the applicant and the employer.
