I tried to find my profession and it doesn’t have it, go figure….  for a similar career it seems to be a little higher than actual.

Have you tried searching PayScale instead? http://www.payscale.com It seems like they have more job titles and positions on their site.

Try glassdoor.com it take salary data from actual company employees.  It has been a good rwsource for me when reviewing salaries or a company.  Robert Half also publishes a salary guide and has a salary center/calculator for a few different industries, however I find their salary reporting to be a bit on the high side.

They didn’t have my job either.  I used payscale.com, it seemed fairly accurate.

This is the beauty of being in a profession where our salaries are publicly reported. I don’t have to wonder how I compare. I can see exactly where I am compared to my peers (sarcasm).

For me, the salary is way too low by $10k on salary.com and slightly too high by 5k on payscale.com.

It also says I’m in the 75-80 percentile and that does seem odd.

According to Salary.com, I’m grossly underpaid. -tears-

My two jobs aren’t even listed on either salary.com or payscale.com.
