How do you discuss salary in an interview?

What do you do if an interviewer wants to talk about salary?

In job interviews, it’s important not to focus on salary or bring it up yourself. If you do, you risk looking as though that’s the only thing you’re interested in.

If asked about your current job’s salary, be honest about what you’re earning. Finally, if asked about what salary you would like in the job you’re interviewing for answer with a tactful response about knowing that you’re sure you’ll be compensated appropriately.
