Tell them honesty your current salary of course.

Expected salary, quote them at least 15% higher than your current salary?

The usual would be around 20-25 percent. Of course if you have upgraded yourself in your previous work either through education or work related training, you can ask for more.

just be truthful. there is no point in avoiding the question, if the company can't meet your expectation then don't waste each other time.

recently went for 1 interview.. asked for 20% before interview considering the more demanding nature of the role... HR came back with 10% despite the hiring mgr is very keen. maybe due to their budget but felt the HR really wasted my time

based on my recent experiences....seems like 5-10% is the norm if your current salary is competitive/market rate.

Depending on how badly you are in need of a new job.

If you are happy in current job, minimally 20% increase to make you move.

If you need to change job badly, 5-10% can be considered.

i only changed job once so only did this once before... the form asked for annual salary so i calculated based on 14 months as that is what i expected to get. for expected salary, i gave a 10-15% increment and based it on 15 months as my previous company pays below average bonus. eventually i was offered slightly higher than my expected salary.
