What skills should you learn to increase your salary?
its not what other companies pay; it is the MODEL you work under. If corporations want a good Recruiting Manager they will pay them a salary plus commission and override on their staff. In 2009 my W-2 was $133K; having said that a CORPORATE Recruiting Manager has very different job than an "agency" Recruiting Manager. We are often responsible for budgets in excess of $2M per year, writing all revisions of Recruitment Policies/Procedures and annual reporting of Affirmative Action just to name a few responsibilities as well as SOX compliance, employee relations incentive plans.
