Do a Salary Survey

As a job seeker or an employee, it pays to be informed.

Having a clear idea of the salary range of the positions you are applying for, or currently working in, can help you to anticipate what your compensation should be, and ensure it stays on track with others in your field.

To make sure you stay "in the know", visit www.payscale.com and complete a salary survey. This helpful tool will show you how your compensation stacks up against your peers. It also allows you to view job opportunities, research employers, and explore education options.
