Furthermore, the number of vacancies without indicated salary level rose in July-August 2013. "On the one hand, certain employers do not want to show the level of salaries offered for top-managers within the company in the market. On the other hand, the range of salaries offered for top-managers is much wider than the range of salaries offered for other personnel. In the course of negotiations an employer and an applicant set an acceptable amount of salary a company is able to pay and which may be claimed by a top-manager with certain experience and qualifications within the current situation in the labor market. Certain employers prefer not to show salary to attract the maximum number of seekers. After all, salaries of top-managers do not include only net salaries but also quarterly and annual payments and bonuses," Svetlana Shaporova comments on.
