    I’m interesting in knowing more about applicable salary ranges for jobs. is it based on the role, your experience, or both? How reliable are those online salary ranking sites, like salary.com? I read they use data from submitted data, rather than surveys or tax records etc. I’d love to see a post on this.

      Hi Rebecca, I’m not sure where you are located, so it’s difficult to guarantee the accuracy of local sites. I can tell you however that http://esalarysurvey.com is completely accurate, but only has data for UK, Australia, Asia. If you are in the US, then marketingsalaries.com and designsalaries.com is good, but it depends on your area of specialisation. Also try Glassdoor.com

    I really hope one day that all job ads will specify a salary range before the interview stage (wishful thinking?). Can be a waste of time for all parties if at the interview stage the salary/package does not meet expectations.

    This is a very interesting post since it addresses one of the most difficult questions an employer can ask. It is a fine balancing act for the interviewee. I normally recommend avoiding answering this question directly when ask and being more ambigious. ‘I am quite flexible…’ is probably a good way to tackle it.
