Proof of earnings

 
#1 Proof of earnings

Hi all

I received an interview invitation recently, which suprisingly asking for proof of earnings. I have never heard of such a requirement for an interview and do not want to give them. Has anyone dealt with similar situation before?

Thx,

King

Provided you've not told any porkies when you've applied for the job (at least concerning your pay), tell them you'll be happy to submit proof of earnings once you've got a signed contract.

I would refuse. This is an incredible request.

The recruiter is clearly trying to maintain a position of strength in which they can offer you the bare minimum to attract you and in doing so are revealing a lack of faith in their ability to recruit effectively.

This is not how it works - if they were any good they would recruit in a way in which they felt secure of the quality of their potential hires, and could then offer a remuneration package to suit.

It's cheap and nasty to do this.

when an employer gives you a reference, do they state what your salary is?

do you ever have to tell a new employer your old salary? you get the going rate for the job, if you are on 20K and get a job at 40K that you can do, then you should get 40K

there is no standard approach to references. some managers/employers are blabbermouths and will say just about anything on the phone, others have to be pushed to even give a 1 line confirmation letter

Thanks for all your constructive suggestions. Actually, I even lose my interests in the employer after I read the ridiculous request.

Good for you - we all need to refuse such requests to stop the creep of this pathetic practise.

Maybe you could name and shame the firm...
