In November 2016, LinkedIn quietly introduced a new tool called the Salary Calculator. This is a job seekers’ tool to find out what the latest salary should be for a chosen job title and location. The results are taken from the data within the LinkedIn jobs area. This is also a great tool for current employees to negotiate a pay increase with their employers!
Why is this a fabulous tool for recruiters?
When you take on a new vacancy from a client it is sometimes difficult to negotiate a higher salary, as the client may be under the impression that you are simply seeking a larger fee. Using the LinkedIn salary calculator, you can prove to your client that to secure the best candidate for the role they will need to offer a competitive salary of XX.
Well done LinkedIn. A good feature!
