November 13, 2012 (Newswire) - Coroflot.com, the longest running career community focused on the design and creative professions online, published their all new Design Salary Guide today bringing valuable compensation insight to both working creatives and hiring managers. The Design Salary Guide, available at www.coroflot.com/DesignSalaryGuide, reveals what designers and creative professionals earn around the world. Working creatives and hiring managers use the survey results to ensure they are receiving and offering competitive compensation, respectively.
The Coroflot Design Salary Guide is the largest and longest-running survey of its kind, offering the most expansive pool of salary information specifically tailored to the creative professions. Now in its twelfth year, the Design Salary Guide has been relaunched with a sophisticated new visualization tool, results describing both full time salaries and freelance rates and compensation information in local currencies around the world.
The GuideÊ¼s new interface allows for detailed comparison of annual salaries and average freelance rates for over 50 job titles covering the creative spectrum. "From Junior Web Designers to Executive Creative Directors, Coroflot connects designers with employment opportunities," said cofounder Stuart Constantine, "The tools we offer bring transparency to the creative hiring process for both clients and candidates." The Design Salary Guide satisfies the need for information voiced by members of the Coroflot audience. Designers frequently need advice on the appropriate hourly rate to charge for a freelance project, or when negotiating a salary for a new position. The addition of location specific salary data helps designers make informed decisions about relocation and the future of their careers.
While the Design Salary Guide informs creative professionals of what their skills and experience are worth, hiring managers use the data to ensure their salary offers are competitive enough to attract the most desirable creative talent. "We are excited about the improvements weÊ¼ve made to our data collection system this year because the results give our audience a strategic advantage on either side of the hiring equation," said Eric Ludlum, cofounder of Coroflot.
Design and creative professionals are encouraged to participate in the Design Salary Guide, available at www.coroflot.com/DesignSalaryGuide.
