Career Link: HR Salary Guide

Negotiating your salary can be one of the most daunting conversations you’ll face throughout your career – if you’re unprepared. Employees often feel like they don't have the resources they need to back up the salary they’re requesting, or perhaps they don’t even know where to get started. When it comes to your career, it’s crucial to know what you’re worth if you want healthy salary progression.

Every industry comes with salary conversations – especially the HR industry – the main reason being that HR professionals will likely experience both sides of the table. They must know what they’re worth, and also know what to pay others (and recommend salary insight to other roles within the company).

In fact, hiring managers are expected to know (and offer) competitive salaries to attract and retain top talent. It’s a delicate balance – one that requires adequate research on both sides of the table to be successful.
