The websites Payscale.com and Salary.com maintain databases of the average salary range for a variety of occupations. Salaries may be searched by job type or title, as well as by salary category.
A salary range is the average range of what individuals employed in certain occupations earn. It may be expressed as an hourly wage or a yearly salary. Each salary range is made up of two numbers. The smaller of the two is the lowest amount a person should generally expect to be paid for a certain position, while the larger number is the highest amount the individual can generally expect to make.
