AOL Jobs reader Georgian asks:

Hey, Jack. I've always heard that a job-seeker should not bring up the question of pay first; however if the employer doesn't mention it, when is the right time and how is the right way to ask. For example, I've applied for a position, but the salary was not stated in the job posting. I've had an initial screening and an interview with the search committee for the position, but the rate of pay has not been mentioned. I anticipate having a final interview with the hiring manager next. When and how should I ask about the salary?
