Are you underpaid?

Your current job market value is one of the most important pieces of information to have in mind on your job search.

This is what happens when you don’t have salary expectations before applying for jobs:

Don’t fall into that trap.

Free or paid, salary surveys help you:

  • Understand your current market value (“what should my salary be? How much should I earn?”), locally or abroad
  • Have salary examples you can refer to in negotiations
  • Learn about options for relocation, to a place where your market value is that much higher
  • Make salary comparisons by job, to learn about other career options where you could earn more or just enough for your desired lifestyle

And that’s why I compiled this for you.

Whether you need to do a quick salary check, or you just need a wage comparison calculator or salary finder, it’s all here.

If you don’t need this list for now, bookmark it for later. Salaries are constantly evolving.

What’s in this list?

In a nutshell, all the resources you need to learn about salaries in 2019:

  • Salary surveys – created by surveying readers about their salaries.
  • Salary databases – also called job salaries lists, here 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, salary studies, etc.
  • Salary or wage search – search on a profession and the results will show typical annual or monthly earnings, or average salaries.
  • Salary paycheck calculators, checkers/finders, 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.

How to use this list

As much as possible, I try to only list sites that are credible and have compiled numbers from their own sources, and aren’t simply recycling information from each other or global sites like Payscale.com.

For best results, compare multiple sites to reinforce your impressions, especially since you might end up making career decisions with these numbers in mind.
