Jobster to utilize PayScale.com real-time salary calculator
Seattle, May 30, 2007 - Jobster, Inc. and PayScale.com today launched the online PayScale Salary Calculator for visitors to Jobster. Through this partnership, Jobster users can gauge their pay against industry peers as well as determine real-time salaries for specific positions without ever leaving Jobster.
"At PayScale, we are enthusiastic about the expanding partnership we have with Jobster. They are clearly one of the leading career networks on the web and it's our belief that access to PayScale salary data will better inform Jobster visitors that are closely monitoring job possibilities and career issues" said Mike Metzger, President and CEO of PayScale.
When a Jobster user finds an interesting job, or finds a job similar to their current position, one click on "Research Salary" - associated with every job listing on Jobster - opens up the Salary Calculator within the current Jobster page the user is viewing and will provide a range of salaries from PayScale's real-time proprietary salary data. If the user is interested in salary information more specific to their skills and experience, the PayScale will take the user directly to PayScale.com for a more in-depth report.
"Partnering with PayScale provides Jobster users with relevant salary data that paints a more complete picture of the jobs they are interested in," said Jason Goldberg, CEO of Jobster. "Integrating PayScale into Jobster search makes for a great user experience because Jobster users can see real-time salary data from the foremost provider of compensation information without ever leaving Jobster."
The innovative PayScale Salary Calculator designed for customization and specificity and a job listing calculator that can appear as a data bubble when the mouse clicks over a position posting are a part of the PayScale Syndication Center. Inside the Syndication Center are salary data tools that indicate market rates, by geography, for listed jobs. Companies and organizations that implement the syndication center offerings will benefit from customized salary data and longer site visits.
