Back in the day when I was responsible for the Hudson sites, we were pretty safe to bet on fresh content to encourage repeat visitors: new jobs and current salary data were consistently the most popular sections of the sites.
This was not a surprise: professionals always want to benchmark themselves especially as they move jobs, and hiring managers and HR people also wanted to stay informed on how well they were paying (or not).
This came to mind when I got wind that from today recruit.net was including salary data at job level (or its closest approximate) in its summary results page. Interestingly, the salary data comes from Payscale, a well-known online provider of remuneration info in the US. I must admit, I was gladly surprised they had information for the region (recruit.net has kicked off the service for Australia and India first).
I’ve had a few clicks and I would say the salary brackets shown are indicative enough; there are also a few blanks for the more obscure roles but I expect the information to get richer. The pay off for Payscale is that visitors can continue from the recruit.net links onto ordering for a personalised salary report (you can order a basic one for free too)
I think there’s still appetite for salary data, so I expect the widget will be pretty useful for job seekers. Give it a go!
