Introducing Salary Insights on Jobs

See Salary Insights in More Places Relevant to You

February 13, 2018

In 2016, we introduced LinkedIn Salary -- a tool that allows users to see a detailed breakdown of salaries by job title and location based on information privately submitted by LinkedIn members. Since then, we’ve been hard at work identifying ways to make this experience even more valuable, and encourage even greater transparency when it comes to conversations about pay.

That’s why today we are announcing Salary Insights: a new way for you to explore compensation details on open roles. This feature will appear on job listings and will show an estimated or expected salary range for the role, based on data from our 546+ million members and employer provided information.

We know salary insights on job listings is important to you. In fact, a recent survey found that more than 70% of professionals want to hear about salary in the first message from a recruiter. By surfacing this information early on in the process, we hope to make the application process more seamless by allowing you to know if a job meets your salary criteria before entering into a conversation with the hiring manager.

The salary information displayed on job listings will come from one of two places:

  1. Employer Provided: Employers can provide salary ranges for specific jobs, meaning you will know exactly what kind of compensation to expect before you apply for the job.

  2. LinkedIn Estimated Salary: If an employer does not provide a salary for a role, we will show you an estimated range from member-submitted data.

You’ll also notice a couple other changes, including the ability to delete your salary information privately in your settings as your career evolves, which will always remain confidential to you and never shared on an individual level. We’ll also periodically remind you to update your salary to ensure you’re getting the most out of the tool.
