Salary

Should I list total compensation or base salary in the salary field?

Base salary. Total compensation may be discussed with a company if you reach the offer stage. 


How do I know what salary to list?

Take advantage of our Salary Calculator. This tool will give you an idea of where to place yourself given your skill-set, years of experience, and location.


Does listing a certain base salary lock me in to that number?

No. Our companies understand your salary to be somewhat negotiable. Think of the number you input as the minimum you are willing to accept, but you may be able to negotiate a higher base salary should any process reach the offer stage. 


Can I update my desired salary after I submit my profile?

Yes. You can update your desired salary at any time. Visit your Profile tab and selecting the second pencil icon from the top. Update your salary as desired. Save.


I'm a Sales candidate. Can't I list OTE instead of base salary?

Not at this time. Sales is a new vertical for Hired. We are currently exploring adding an OTE field, but for the meantime, list your desired base salary instead. Our companies looking for Sales candidates also understand the figure listed is base salary, not OTE.
