People leave or change their job for different reasons. However, the search for better remuneration remains one of the major reasons people change jobs or roles. LinkedIn is set to launch a new tool on its open job posts that will allow you to know the approximate salary of a position before you apply for it.

Salary Insights, the name of the new tool will provide an overall estimates salary, including base compensation, range and total compensation for a given role. LinkedIn’s new tool is almost similar to what Glassdoor, an anonymous job review site does.

LinkedIn’s new tool will derive its data from information provided by employers that have posted their salary range or members of the professional social networking group already working in similar positions. Location and identities of members in similar positions will, however be kept private.

In related news, LinkedIn’s Resume Assistant, a tool that was launched by the professional social networking group last year has now been extended to Office 365 subscribers on Windows.

Landing your dream job is just a step away if you are able to put up a great resume. It involves adding what should be and getting rid of those things that shouldn’t have been in the first place. According to LinkedIn, the Resume Assistant will help you get “inspiration and resources to craft a compelling resume directly within Microsoft Word.” Along with this comes the opportunity to see relevant jobs on LinkedIn that are personalized to you.

In a survey recently conducted among US professionals, per LinkedIn, about 70 percent indicated that the most challenging part of putting together a resume is not having an idea if how to portray themselves in the most effective way. While more than 50 percent reported that customizing their resume for a specific role was a major hurdle to achieving their goal.

With LinkedIn’s Resume Assistant, you should be able to overcome some of those challenges usually associated with writing an effective resume. Do you really have any other option? The fact that over 15 million job applications are being submitted on LinkedIn daily, makes it very important to get things right.

LinkedIn, a professional network group with over 500 million members in its community, is one of the best places to connect with different professional groups and companies hoping to hire people.

LinkedIn has more than 10 million jobs listed, more than 9 million company profiles, and over 100,000 business articles published each week. The professional social networking company will, however, have to convince potential job seekers of their privacy especially when it has to do with how much they hope to earn.

The company recently drew the anger of many users when it was revealed that a new feature will be offering to share an employee’s data with her employer. According to LinkedIn, the offer is only available for a select few companies who will have access to their employees’ online sharing behavior.
