Find Out How Much Your Talents are Worth

As you're in the job search process, it's important to know what you can expect to receive in
compensation. For the same type and level of job, not only can the pay vary from one company
to the next, but from one city to the next. The site I refer to below is especially helpful because it
gives information specific to your job, but also for your current geographical area or to the area
you're considering moving to. This site offers to sell a report with additional information, but the
salary information itself is free—and here’s how you get it:

  • Go to
  • In the section called 'Free Salary Wizard', click on ‘What is your job title?’ and enter the
    job title you're interested in
  • Click on ‘Where do you work?’ and enter your zip code
  • Click Search
  • You may be brought to a page with an advertisement, but you can bypass it by clicking
    ‘skip this advertisement’ in the top right corner.
  • You’ll probably get more than one result, and they're either identical to the job title you
    provided, or a variation. After each job title is the first sentence or so of a job description.
    If you want to read the full description, click on ‘More’.
  • When you're finished with the full description, click on the red ‘X’ on the top right corner
    of the page.
  • Once you’ve selected the description that best fits you, click on ‘For You: Base Salary
    Range’ for the free salary information. I believe the information they provide is generally
    on the high side, so it’s advisable to reduce the numbers they provide by, say, 10 or 15%.

One thing to keep in mind is that this tough economy and high unemployment rates may result
in lower compensation levels than those of a few years ago.
