Try to move the salary discussion further back in the interview process so it’s not used as a potential way to eliminate you from the running. You want the companies to know your real value before you discuss money. One possible way to get around a salary requirement in an online application is simply to fill in “1,” with the expectation that the hiring decision maker will still be interested in you based on your experience, credentials, achievements, and other qualifications. Alternatively, if you are allowed to enter words into the salary field, simply write “Negotiable.”
