What's Fair and Why?

Though you may be tempted to pick a salary figure that "sounds good," you'll need more than a gut feeling to back up your claims. You'll want to know what the averages are for the position and industry you're entering, as well as what a cost-of-living adjustment might be.

By researching average salaries for your field, you position yourself to ask for a salary package that prospective employers will find reasonable. You'll also be able to justify anything you ask for above the average by outlining the special skills you bring to the table. For more information, see our Salary section.
