PayScale Launches Program to Help Users Achieve Career Goals; Gives Away an Extra Paycheck

New "Make It Happen" feature provides customized career advice to achieve specific career goals

Seattle - January 3, 2013 - PayScale, Inc., the world's largest real-time salary data provider with 40 million unique user profiles, today announced the launch of the PayScale Make It Happen program and the Extra Paycheck Sweepstakes.

The Make It Happen program will help individuals take control of their careers by providing guidance on how to achieve the following career goals:

  • Get a Raise
  • Get a Promotion
  • Find a New Job
  • Get Hired (if unemployed)
  • Be Better At Your Job
  • Change Careers

"PayScale has always been the place to go to find out how you're doing today, career-wise, in terms of salary and compensation," said Barnaby Dorfman, GM of consumer business, PayScale. "But now we're putting our data to work to help employees and job seekers take the next step in terms of taking control of their career today and in the future. The Make It Happen Guide will provide customized tools, articles and a to-do list to help you make that wish a reality and make 2013 a great year for your career."

Extra Paycheck Sweepstakes

In addition, PayScale is giving away an extra paycheck to one lucky user who signs up for the Make It Happen program. The sweepstakes launched Dec. 27 and will continue through Feb. 14 after which time one Make It Happen participant will be selected to receive an extra paycheck (based on a pre-determined salary of $100,800/year paid twice monthly so prize value is $4,200).

Participants also have the opportunity to earn additional sweepstakes entries by sharing with friends. And, if your friend wins the grand prize, we'll give you a special bonus of 10 percent of the grand prize value ($420).

To share progress on your goals and connect with other career goal-setters, use the Twitter hashtag #MakeItHappen.
