has launched SalaryScale
to help its users understand salary rates in their careers to help them negotiate for their job salaries with enough information.
“Have you ever needed salary data for negotiations or wanted to take informed career decisions? I bet you ran out of luck after a couple of Google searches. You are not alone,” said Ogugua Belonwu, CEO MyJobMag which has operations in Nigeria
and South Africa.
, crowdsources salary data in Nigeria and aims to anonymously ask users to contribute their current or previous salary data to help others get the information they need before taking up such jobs or similar ones.
The firm adds that the information is extremely valuable as it will help users negotiate their next pay raise or move to another industry or company.
MyJobMag is yet to confirm if SalaryScale will be available in Kenya and South Africa where it runs job ad platforms.
