Best Free Salary Data: Nicki Minaj or Kim Kardashian?

My guest post for Business Insider and Brazen Careerist compares the two largest sources of free salary data on the internet – and – to cultural icons Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian. didn’t particularly like being compared to Kim Kardashian, but in the end had a little fun with the comparison. Their main contention with my article was that they felt I questioned the veracity of their data and implied that it was not well-respected by the HR community. I addressed their points in a follow-up article for Business Insider.

After all the back and forth, you might be wondering how the other free sources of salary data compare. Fill out the form below and I will send you a free report comparing and ranking all of the freely available salary data sources on the internet, including:
Bureau of Labor Statistics
Job Search Intelligence
Industry Association Surveys

    Hey Joseph, We saw your article on Business Insider and appreciate some of the kind words about PayScale, but we disagreed on a couple points, so I wrote an article of my own. I hope this helps clarify a couple things around PayScale’s data. Also, we’d welcome the chance to talk to you more about the data.

    Would love to hear from you.
