Here’s a Step-by-Step Overview of How to Access and Use Glassdoor’s Widgets:

Let's take for example that you are looking to share information on the highest average compensation packages  for software engineers. To access this information and utilize the widget, you must:

  1. Log on to
  2. Enter your login information (Note you will need to complete a salary or company survey in order to log in)
  3. Once logged in, make sure ‘salaries’ are selected in the first drop down menu box
  4. Then where it reads ‘company name or job title’ enter ‘software engineer’ in the search field and then click enter
  5. You’ll then see a screen appear listing all the software engineer salary reports submitted to Glassdoor.
  6. Find the drop down menu called ‘sort by’ box and select ‘avg. salary high to low’
  7. Once you have the information you are looking for, look for the ‘Share’ drop down menu located to the right of where it reads ‘Salaries for software engineer’ and then select 'embed'.

8.    A new screen should pop up offering two forms of widgets in which to present the information on your screen.

  • The first option allows you to incorporate a box into your blog post that presents the information immediately.

  • Or, the second option provides you with the opportunity to hyperlink a key phrase from within your blog post – so if you insert the phrase ‘software engineer salaries’ into a blog post and embed the HTML provided, you readers can slide their mouse over the keyword and a small box will pop up with the relevant information.
