US-based professional networking platform LinkedIn has launched LinkedIn Salary in India, which provides users detailed salary trends for different professions.
As salary negotiations traditionally lack transparency, the new feature will help job seekers make informed decisions about the best possible compensation for a job. It will help them find the job that pays them the right remuneration.
The LinkedIn Salary feature will provide insights on best paying locations, top paying companies, salaries based on educational qualifications and industries, regarding a specific job title.
To access this feature, members with free accounts will have to share their salary data, while premium members can access this data without submitting their salary details.
“In India’s competitive jobs market, LinkedIn Salary will help create salary transparency and empower our members with reliable data on what companies are paying today, what kind of compensation packages to expect, and how salaries vary as per industries and educational qualifications, ” said Ajay Datta, the Head of Product at LinkedIn India.
