To aid jobseekers in their employment journey, online job portal Jobstreet introduced a new feature in its Career Tools platform called Salary Guide. This feature will enable applicants to compare salaries by specialization, position level, industry, and location.
Fresh graduates or even those who are looking at working in a different industry will now have a guide on how to rate themselves when asked during job interviews. It will also help them to ask for a competitive and realistic salary.
“One of the challenges that job hunters often face, especially if they’re new to the industry or a fresh graduate, is the lack of information on the salary they are worthy of,” said Philip Gioca, country manager, Jobstreet Philippines. “The Career Tool’s salary guide is here to spare you the struggle and provide our jobseekers with the current salary trends specific to their positions and industries of their interest.”
To access and use the feature:
- Jobseekers only need to visit JobStreet’s Career Tools
- Click on the Salary Guide button
- Enter their specialization, experience level, industry, and their monthly base salary.
Once data is generated, candidates will see a graph indicating the lowest, the median, and the highest pay in the industry specified and tells them where their salary stands in comparison. The results are based on JobStreet employer ads for the last 12 months.
JobStreet Salary Guide also provides information on which industries pay well for specialization or service. It ranks top-performing industries based on the median salary paid to those services each month. Getting to know this information can open doors to other industries where jobseekers’ careers can better flourish.
To better understand salary trends, JobStreet Salary Guide shows its users the salary industry trends. With the use of graphs, it displays a ranking of the top and least performing specializations for the past three years, as well as the progression of the jobseekers specialization’s performance. This aims to aid candidates in gauging how valued certain specializations are in the job market and help you make smarter choices when seeking for jobs.
