What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.
