Should I say what I´m earning?

Listing Your Income

If your resume is going to a search firm that needs to know your current salary, be honest and thorough.

Include your base salary plus any bonuses and other compansation. If your last bonus was less than usual, then state what your usual bonus is. Your bonus potential is not relevant. Keep the bonus information to that which you have already received.
