- Salary.com: The site buys its information from corporations and uses it to provide average salaries for 3,700 job categories. You'll have to pay for more personalized reports that factor in details like education and experience; entry-level candidates pay $29.95 and executives pay up to $79.95.
See two more websites when you read more.
- PayScale.com: Because the website gets its information from individuals and not from companies, you're required to fill out a profile to peruse the site. SmartMoney didn't see much of a difference between the numbers it saw on PayScale versus Salary.com. There's a feature that allows you to see other individual's bios, and you can research up to four job descriptions for free. A premium membership costs $19.95 and allows you to research 10 job descriptions.
- Jobnob.com The site has about a quarter of the information compared to the other sites since it just launched in February, but all of the information can be accessed for free. The company's co-founder says "jobs are being added rapidly," so it's a site to keep in mind going forward.
