One of my major frustrations with job searching online was not seeing any salary information on job listings.
Was I looking at a job posting that paid $40,000, or a job posting that paid $80,000???
It was extremely frustrating to try and guess whether I was wasting my time or not.
Indeed has some algorithm where they do the “estimate” (read their blog post to see how they do it) Here’s what you see in the search results:
I would really like to see other job boards do this.
Now, if HR and recruiters would just put real numbers in the job posting, instead of “depends on experience” or some other vague information. Maybe Indeed’s actions will force these folks to put it in, to prevent bad estimates from showing up?
Seriously, this was one of my top three frustrations with the job search process, with regard to job boards and online technology. Kudos to Indeed – this is actually the most impressive thing I’ve seen from a job board in a long, long time!
