Springraise.com – The career sharing network.

Have you ever wondered what the people working around you are making but are too scared to ask? Springraise might just be for you. It’s dubbed as a “Carreer sharing network” and let’s you track your “career curve” and compare it against others in your industry with similar experience levels as you.

Springraise isn’t quite let yet (launching May 21st) but you can see a preview of the app below.

Click for larger version.

So how does it work?

1. Enter your full background and employment information (past and present)
2. View your career over time to see how you compare to others like you
3. See the careers of others like you (in one click) and compare your career to theirs
4. Perform scenarios to see your career prospects
5. Discuss with others to learn how they made their career decisions

This video should give you a bit more of an insight to the concept and idea. I’m looking forward to seeing this one in action.

    Conrad, thanks for the comment! FYI, percentages aren’t additive. So going from $27,000 to $31,200 is actually just under a 16% increase, even though the initial 8% was then increased by another 7%. Here’s the calculation:

    $4,200/$27,000 = 15.56% Rounding up after the 0.5 (as is custom in mathematics) leaves 16% as advertised.

    I hope you enjoyed the video!
