Salary sought refers to how much you are looking to make at this job (not your past one, or you will be offered the same or less than you got at that last job!). This is a tricky question. If you give a figure that is too high, they could discard your application because they think you will not be interested in the job. If it is too low, then they will offer you less money than you could have gotten otherwise. I usually write in "Market", which means that I am looking for them to pay me what I am worth. We can talk about actual numbers when they offer me the job.
