Unemployed lawyer salary demands

Update April 2014: There’s a newer version of this list.

How to use this list

  • The list only includes sites that are credible or that explain where their numbers come from.
  • Compare results across multiple sites for best results. Salaries are always changing and many of these sites are based on employee-submitted information.
  • If you know of any other 2010 salary resources that aren’t in the list, please suggest them in the comments below.

What’s in this list?

  • Salary surveys – created by surveying readers about their salaries.
  • Salary databases – readers contribute information about their jobs, sometimes in exchange for access to the rest of the database.
  • Salary reports – a salary report can be written from a company’s own data or compiled from a combination of salary surveys, government statistics, company disclosures, etc.
  • Salary or wage search – search on a profession and the results will show typical earnings.
  • Salary calculators or checkers, wage/worth estimators - you fill out a form of questions about your profession and the calculated result is an estimate of the salary you should be earning. If you’re employed, this a good way to judge how fair your pay is.
