Finding High Salary Positions
How do you keep track of what you're
worth? Strategic use of the popular online job search sites is the
most effective way to track your position in the job market by
always knowing both where and what the high paying jobs are and
what they require.
A good methodology for
determining your current salary position is to sign up at most or
all of the free sites, and to employ their "jobfinder
agents" to look for jobs similar to yours. These agents will
report this information back to you as frequently as you request.
Below is a list of job search
sites ranked on a [0 - 10] scale, in approximate order of the
number of high paying positions listed. The ranking is based on
the total number of records returned by entering the following
terms as search keywords: 80K, 90K, 100K, and 120K.
