Have you ever wondered if your co-workers are making more money than you?
Salary is a sensitive subject to talk about, especially while you're at work. Most companies frown upon employees discussing what they are being paid.
That doesn't mean you shouldn't investigate if you're being paid what you are worth. There is a site that will help you with this.
The LinkedIn Salary tool helps you make better career decisions and optimize your earning potential. Both now and in the future.
Here's how it works: you enter a job title and what location you are in or interested in moving to. The LinkedIn Salary tool then searches its database of over 460 million members to let you know what the average salary is for that job and location. It's that simple.
The information analyzed includes salary, bonuses and equity data. It takes into account years of experience, company size, location, industry and education level.
The tool is safe to use. Once you enter your salary information it is immediately encrypted and will remain private.
If you're a LinkedIn Premium member, you will have access to the Salary tool without having to enter your salary information.
Having all of this data at your fingertips will help you make a more educated decision on your next career move.
