Tips on how to check salary statistics

When checking salary statistics, keep in mind that:

  • The wage statistics indicate the wage range. Do not stare blindly at the median salary - maybe you want to aim for the ninetieth percentile, or higher? Then find out what is required in terms of responsibilities and achievements to get there.
  • Wage statistics are not an argument in themselves. Use it to set goals in your next salary interview and more long-term. The arguments for the salary you want should be based on your responsibility, your skills and your performance.
  • The salary statistics are not a conclusion - it only indicates what others had in salary when they provided the information. Use the statistics as guidance on which salary range you should be in.
  • Make many selections and compare salaries in different industries, tasks and positions to see your potential salary development and your career opportunities.
