I ’m working in financial institution. I have more than 5 years experienced and due to economic crisis I only received a raised twice. Knowingly today’s economy I have doubt that I will have the salary that I’m looking for. I want to know if the new employer will call my current employment and verify how much I have been making. I don’t want them to low blow me and getting the same or little raise. I want to start high so I can negotiate my salary.
