About the Global Salary Survey

Now in its eighteenth edition, the Robert Walters annual Global Salary Survey is the most comprehensive review of professional salaries and recruitment trends around the world.

The complete book, consisting of 27 countries, is free and covers North and South America, Canada, UK, Ireland, Continental Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The Global Salary Survey is based on the analysis of permanent, interim and contract placements made across each of our geographies and recruitment disciplines.

Hiring trends in the US in 2017

In 2017, we expect hiring levels to remain high. Companies will continue to compete for top candidates and will not lower their expectations just to get someone on board to fill a role. 

On the West Coast, software developer hiring will remain the top priority for all hiring managers in 2017, with demand continuing to outstrip supply at all levels of seniority. Design and data recruitment will continue to be challenging due to a chronic shortage of candidates. Employers looking to secure top talent in 2017 must act decisively to bring new candidates on board. 

On the East Coast, we expect regulatory compliance to remain a priority for financial services firms. Demand for accountancy professionals with a compliance or regulatory background will therefore be strong, and as a result, these professionals will be able to command generous salaries. Digital media and technology will also continue to grow in 2017.
