Over 100 Salary Surveys, Guides and Calculators For 2014

name your salary cartoon

Know the market rate for a job before recruiters ask what the rate is for you.

Salary surveys help you:

* Understand your current market value, locally or abroad
* Learn about options for relocation, where your market value is that much higher

How to use this list

As much as possible, I try to only list sites that are credible and have compiled their own numbers from their own sources. For best results, compare multiple surveys to reinforce your impressions, especially since you might end up making decisions with these numbers in mind.

Spider

To really take advantage of your own domain name.

A JobMob reader asks:

I have a professional question. Do you know how someone gets a domain name that is their name? As in jacob@jacobshare.com?

There are actually 2 parts to the question:

1) How do you get your own domain name?
2) How do you use that domain for a website and/or email?

I previously answered the first question in How To Get and Use Your Own Domain Name. If you missed it, you might want to go read it now (the link will open in a new window/tab).

In this article, I’ll focus on the second question.

What’s New, Hot and Hidden on LinkedIn

3 LinkedIn features that you aren’t using enough of.

This is a guest post by Donna Sweidan. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines.

There are a few things we know for sure:

* The world of work has irreversibly changed
* job search is no fun
* networking is the foundation of your career success and…
* LinkedIn is now as fundamental to a job search as a resume ever was

So where does this leave you if LinkedIn is always evolving, you’re ready to hustle, or you are still employed and need to be discrete about a job search?

For better or worse, the LinkedIn interface and its features are always evolving, and it’s just not that intuitive to use. Like many other social media tools, there are just so many bells and whistles it’s hard to keep up with them.

So what’s a frustrated job seeker (or career changer) to do?

You have until the count of three. That’s it – just three seconds for your opening web page to load on customers’ screens. Otherwise…wave good-bye!

A study released by website performance measurement firm Gomez found that the average online viewer expects their browser to render a page in two seconds or less.
