Recruitment Guru Rowan Manahan's advice on discussing salary in an interview.

Key points to consider:

1. Research salary scales for your industry before the interview

2. Never be the first to raise the topic of salary in an interview - leave that to the interviewer

3. Don't lie or inflate your current salary

4. Never discuss salary in the early stages of the interview process - salary negotiation can come later once you know the company is interested in you.

5. Never say a number - you might talk yourself out of a job or worse still the company gets you really cheap
