How should I set my resume listing’s wage?

The wage you set for your listed resume listing is completely up to you. This depends on how you think you are entitled to earn based on your existing knowledge, experience, skills, national minimum wage etc. To help you decide, you can search for comparable listings in your city or neighbourhood to get an idea of wages in the industry.

It is also recommended that you check the Australian national minimum wage when setting wage for the employee that you’re listing.

Keep in mind that a lower asking wage does not mean that there is better chance that your listed employee will get hired. Companies often look for great people who can help them move forward, and they are willing to pay more to hire outstanding candidates. So it’s best to make your profile stand out and don’t hesitate to put a higher asking wage that you believe the employee should get.

And last, but not least, you can always negotiate the asking wage with hirer.
