This is helpful thank you. i just have one scenario that i personally encountered, they ask me " what is your currently salary" or "what is salary from your last job". i did answer this and i guess i made a mistake because if you are underpaid from your last job they will probably offer almost the same.

Yep, that's what the previous article was all about!
Even if they didn't have bad intentions, the question puts the candidate in a loose-loose situation while the pay history is not relevant to establish the new salary.
