VERITY LUSH: Spending squillions to point out the blindingly obvious

Have your say

May I offer some advice to all companies out there?

You’d receive a lot more applications from genuinely interested people and fewer from timewasters if you stated the salary you intended to pay.

You expect applicants to reveal everything about themselves, so why aren’t you prepared to reveal what we’ll be paid?

I wouldn’t dream of applying for a position unless I had a fair idea of the amount that would be going into my bank account at the end of each month.

I think it says a lot about a business and how much staff are valued by revealing the salaries it pays.

If a firm is being somewhat cagey, then it makes you wonder what else it might be concealing.
