Are You Getting Paid What You Should Be?


Australian Salary Survey and Salary Checker: Everyone at some time in their working career wonders if they’re getting paid enough for the job they do. With the media frequently highlighting the gender salary gap and pay discrepancies between men and women, many job seekers are now questioning if what they’re getting paid is correct, legal and fair.

Others begin their search to find out what they should be getting paid when they’re thinking about a job move, a career change or preparing for an annual performance review or seeking a job promotion. Or they may be thinking about getting a professional resume written and wondering if a career move is the right one (and if they can afford a job move), or they may be anticipating that tricky interview question “What are your salary expectations?”

Whatever your motivation, these Australian Salary Survey guides will help.
