Bookmark These: Are you paid enough?

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | (MCT) Are you paid enough? It's hard to know without examining what people in your type of job are getting. These sites help with publicly available data on salaries, and tips for getting more.
YOU MAKE HOW MUCH?
This article at Bankrate.com names, in addition to a compendium of online sources for a "cyber salary search," a number of off-line ways to check out the going pay for any given job, including — gasp — asking friends and neighbors. It suggests, "Just ask them what they think a person should expect as an average salary for someone with your level of experience. You're not asking them what they make, but just asking for a range."
At this site, you can name a job title, type in your ZIP code, and see a bell curve of the salaries being offered for that job in your chosen field and geographic area. Other refinements for your experience and education levels get more specific. And then you can see specific job offerings. There are corresponding services for employers. The company behind the site sells access to its human resources software tools.
Another "salary calculator" is this one at PayScale.com, which takes into account your level of experience, the type and size of organization you want to work in, and your special skills.
