Tool for salary negotiation

    After the webinar yesterday on negotiating salary, I remembered that I used to use a site for writing job descriptions and discovering skills that might be needed for any role within a company. I went back and looked at it this morning and it also tells salary range and median salary for that position. This could be a helpful tool in beginning research on your potential earnings! This can also aid any of us in creating a list of everything that we do in our jobs so when it comes time for negotiation, we don't get tongue tied or stuck.

    The website is O*NET OnLine (https://www.onetonline.org/).

    Please share any tools you might use to learn more about job salaries, job requirements, or really anything you might use to put yourself in a better position for negotiation.

    I have often used Glassdoor's tools to find averages for salaries or compare my salary with salaries being offered within regional locations (example: CRM Developer in the Washington D.C. area). It's not perfect, but I've found it helpful.

    On the call Jaime stressed leaning on industry averages instead of what a company has offered in the past as justifications for raises. It's data driven, and isn't subjective as companies should stay competitive for its employees' skill sets.
