Facts About Your Job

I was pointed to a very interesting site recently: JobFact. Essentially it is a database of what salaries look like for people in different industries, all entered anonymously by employees themselves. A European website that has recently launched in the UK, I think it is a very interesting concept – especially from the point of view of employees because it gives them a much stronger position when they talk money with their employers and allows them to see peers’ opinions of different companies, but also to the recruitment industry in general because it encourages transparency. I’m sure all of us at some point in our careers have really really wished we were in a better position when negotiating salaries. JobFact really helps those of us in situations like that. And as you all know, I believe in crowdsourcing. 

Have a gander.
