LinkedIn is rolling out a salary comparison tool to help professionals discover where they could make more money.

Do Your Research: Before initiating a conversation about salary, spend some time researching what professionals in your industry and role are being paid by talking to people in your network and using LinkedIn Salary to compare with others who have similar skills and years of experience.
Be Transparent: Go into the conversation with a solid number in your head and don’t be afraid to lay it on the table. Use LinkedIn Salary to help you understand how factors like your education and past experience could impact your salary.
Don’t Be Afraid to Counter: If your employer or potential employer comes back with less than you were asking, work together to find a common ground – and make sure you’re prepared to explain why you deserve it.
With these personalized insights, LinkedIn aims to provide users with the tools needed to make informed decisions one’s earning potential.
