Data Comparability | Don’t Compare Apples with Oranges

In order to achieve true market benchmarks, data must conform to a standard set of values. Obviously, a receptionist and software architect have vastly different pay rates and bill rates. Amazingly however, it may turn out that the level of rate variability within a single job title even when constrained to a specific level of experience is unsettlingly high. Accordingly, TDX has devised a way for members to explore the various attributes that uniquely make up requirements within any given job title. In fact, what is treated as a single job title can at times be broken down into several “variants” for more specificity – and such specificity yields increased benchmarking precision. At the company level, attributes include industry, company size and location. At the job title level however the wide variety of attributes available may vary based on the ready data associated with each selection. Attributes may include skills, shifts, experience, certifications, licenses, education, clearance and fragments of job descriptions that our algorithms determine to be the most relevant to the role.
