How does it work?

What is the "where do you want to work" question?

Salaries vary a lot depending on where you want to work. So your answer depends on the location.

You might just choose the location you're already in if you're not looking to move, or maybe you're living in London and want to know what your salary in Lisbon might look like.

What is the "type of role" question?

This gives you the ability to choose with which types of tech roles the experts working on your CV should have most experience with.

Which questions can I ask?

The "Additional question" is optional. Our experts will always tell you your potential salary, bonus and give some specific feedback. This additional question could be

  • "Do you think I could be a Product Manager?"
  • "What's the best paying industry in London for my profile?"
  • "Do you think it's worth doing an MBA to progress to a C-level position?"

What happens after the purchase?

Your request is assigned to experts (as many as you chose) from the Industry you chose, and who have experience in the Region you selected. Once they input their feedback into the system we review it and send you out the final report via email.

How do you choose the experts?

We work with HR professionals (mostly HR Managers, Recruiters and Headhunters) who have at least 5 years experience in the IT industry, and who have easily reviewed more than a thousand CVs and participated in a large number of hiring processes.

Where's the list of experts?

Since all of our experts have their full-time jobs, they typically ask us not to showcase them outside of the reports - and since we don't want to show only a handful, we don't list their names except in your personal report, where you'll see their names, photos and a short summary of their credentials.

What does the report contain?

Here's a sample. For each expert you hired:

  • Their name, photo and mini bio
  • Your potential salary (gross yearly)
  • Your yearly bonus (if applicable)
  • Personal feedback about the numbers and your specifics
  • An answer to your additional question (if you asked one)

When will I get the report?

Within 48 hours of your purchase! In some situations it might take slightly longer, but we'll do everything possible to keep the 48 hours.

Will anyone spam me?

Absolutely not! Neither us nor the experts assigned to your case. Your email and all other information is only used for the purposes explained.

What about my privacy?

Our experts sign an NDA with us that mandates they should not keep nor use any of your information for any other purpose than completing your report.

How do the vouchers work?

Vouchers are short codes that your friends might share with you. Just insert them in the form and watch the price go down!

Each voucher can only be used a certain amount of times and up to an expiry date. They are on a first come first served basis, so act quick if you're lucky enough to catch one.

What about the money back guarantee?

After getting your report, if you feel we didn't deliver, you can just hit reply and tell us why. Assuming you have a valid point, your full amount will be reimbursed!
