This will make the search marketing community aware of their minimum expected salary. Great initiative by SEMPO.

Very cool, I just moved to LA and am considering several opportunities, but it looks like all SEM employers want to know my salary expectations. This is such a difficult thing, on one hand I want the job, any job at the moment, on the other I want to make sure they pay me what I am worth so that I am not tempted to change 6 months from now. Thanks for the help.

Wow, I never knew that SEMPO Releases In House SEM Salary Survey. That's pretty interesting...
