How accurate and credible are the online salary survey data?

the salary i have been offered is way below the range that the several salary survey sites have suggested. Can i use the survey sites as leverage to negotiate a higher salary?

How accurate and credible are the online salary survey data?
You can try - but you always need to be cautious when negotiating. And remember - it varies a LOT on location. (Talk to a temp agency to get a solid feel for what you should be earning.)





Also, it varies if you have special skills, a long work history, etc.





If you can show a company what you bring to them, that will help!





Best of luck!
