Cool Tool: Salary Calculator


Since being on the hunt for my next gig, I have been asked several hard questions by recruiters and clients. The question: “What kind of salary/rate are you looking for?” Now any consultant conducting interviews knows the inevitability of that question. And it should be addressed sooner rather than later.

The problem in answering that question is not knowing what kind of figure to give. Obviously you don’t want to low-ball yourself and giving a number too high can scare folks away. So I won’t belabor the point any further. Check out the salary calculator over at Simply Hired – link

Want to know what the average salary of a Senior Flex Developer in Dallas, TX is? Plug it in. Now get this: Simply adding th keyword ‘Adobe’ in the search parameters gives a significant jump in salary. So this may not be the best tool for zoning in on a specific number, but it will give you enough info to get some sort of range to play with.
