PODCAST: Here’s Why Salary Range Should Be In Job Descriptions
If your company is hiring and the job posting doesn’t include a salary range, you may be turning off good candidates. According to the Society for Human Resource Management, 70% of job seekers surveyed by LinkedIn said they want to know salary information up front.
Glassdoor.com backs this up with their survey — 76% of the 1100 workers and job seekers they surveyed said money is their number one motivator. One person interviewed in the SHRM article said that our tight job market means most people now have options. They don’t want to waste time applying for positions that might not meet their compensation goals.
If you want your posting to appeal to more people, include how much they’ll make, what they’re expected to do and make online information about the company easily accessible. If you’re including a paragraph about the company, the recommendation is to put it at the very end.
