Default Possible to change expected salary?

  • Sent in a job application.
  • HR called back asking for expected salary.
  • Quoted a figure taking a pay cut from last drawn as I have been out of job for some time.
  • HR seemed curious why I quoted an expected salary lower than last drawn and I explained it is a conservative expected salary that should fall within the usual salary range for that position and not price myself out. My last company is known to pay better than the current company I am applying to.
  • HR later called back again to confirm an interview and gave me the application form that asks for my expected salary again.
  • Can I now quote a higher figure and take a lower pay cut without getting into trouble with the hiring manager/HR?
