It is important to be informed of the salary range that is suitable for your
experience and ability as well as your career field and industry. Even if
salary is not negotiable, as in the case of many entry-level jobs, you want
to be familiar with the salary range for your chosen profession and the
increases you can expect as you move up the career ladder. Also, you should
be aware of how the cost of living in different areas of the country will
impact your income. Remember, making 40K in Salisbury, MD is a lot different
than making 40K in New York City!
