Should I use my Salary information, including the trend and absolute level, to show career progression, achievement and worth to an organisation?

I would never do this in person, but is it acceptable on a business school application? Or will I seem detestable?

Do British schools look at this less favourably than US schools?

Do some schools ask for this information? How do they interpret it? Do they like to see a breakdown between bonus & basic?

I know that I have asked lots of questions, I would appreciate anybody's input & comments.

Only include it if the explicitly ask for it. Overall, it really doesn't matter for either US or UK schools too much-- they don't care if you made "big bucks". When they ask, feel free to include salary + bonus for the specific years they reference.

What about trend? [#permalink] New post 01 Dec 2005, 07:23
Thanks. That makes things clearer.

What if I started out making very little and it increased rapidly (same firm, same job)?

If they do ask for it, what do they look for? Are they trying to play with their "value added" statistic for the rankings?

Expert's post
I think they're looking for just what you have: evidence that your salary increased rapidly. It's kind of like they're looking to see if your employer puts its money where its mouth is. If you got promoted to "Manager" but barely got a raise, then they will assume it was mostly just a change in title. But if you say you took on lots of responsbility quickly and your change in salary seems consistent with that, that will help a lot.
