Salary.com''s Salary Wizard Now In Canada

Date: May 4 2005

Find out if you earn enough with free new online tool

Salary.com''s Salary Wizard now available in Canada on Monster.ca

MONTREAL,Quebec - July 30, 2002
- Salary.com, the No. 1 source of salary information, and Monster.ca, Canada''s leading career management portal, today announced that the Salary Wizard?, a comparative salary tool, is now available in Canada. The Canadian version of the Salary Wizard is now featured on Monster Canada (http://salary.monster.ca).

The Canadian edition of the Salary Wizard is built on a database of compensation data for more than 350 job titles benchmarked by Salary.com''s team of compensation professionals. All data used in establishing salary levels has been reported by human resources professionals. Most jobs in the Salary Wizard are based on 100 or more incumbent salaries.

Any employee or employer seeking the prevailing rate for someone in a particular job title can do so in three steps by using the Salary Wizard at no charge. Users choose a job category, a location, and a job title from drop-down menus, then review the job description to ensure an accurate match. The Salary Wizard instantly returns a detailed salary report for hundreds of positions in any Canadian province.

For example, the Salary Wizard data for July 2002 shows that the median base salary for a credit clerk working in Quebec is $29,998 compared to a national median base salary of $28,007. A sales/marketing director in Toronto has a median base salary of $91,195 compared to $81,665 at the national level (all figures in CDN dollars).

"Salary.com has fielded countless customer requests for Canadian compensation information," said Tim Driver, Salary.com''s senior vice president and general manager of consumer products. "Building on the success of the Salary Wizard syndication network in the United States, and in response to market demand, we have expanded our compensation database to include Canadian salary information. We are pleased to extend our agreement with Monster and become an essential ingredient in Monster.ca."

"We''re convinced that the Salary Wizard will effectively address the lack of online salary comparison tools in the Canadian market. It will help save hours or even days of research for both recruiters and job seekers and give them a clear understanding of fair market value, which makes for more fruitful salary negotiations. This fits in perfectly with our empowerment philosophy," said Gabriel Bouchard, Vice-President and General Manager of Monster.ca.
