How Do I Respond to Salary Questions on My Resume?

I'm wondering how to answer salary desired question on a resume. Can you help?
Bobby, I moved this question here, as it is never appropriate to state salary requirements on a resume. But employers do sometimes ask you to state your salary requirements as part of applying for a job.
I think it's best to avoid giving real specific answers to this question, but you can state a general range, with the qualifying statement, that "Salary requirements are negotiable, based on other aspects of the job."
The place to say this is in your cover letter. Basically, you want to communicate that, while salary is an important consideration, it is not the ONLY one.
To your success,
