Q: I am currently the vice-president of a non-profit earning $62K a year plus good benefits. I am also a candidate for two similar positions with two other not-for-profits. Both probably pay between $100K & $150K. How should I discuss my previous salary, which I have successfully avoided thus far (but it is public record, so only a matter of time). What strategy do I need to get up at the high end of the range? I fear being possibly perceived as a less experienced candidate.
