Should the salary expectation when applying for a job be net or gross?

When applying for a job on Get on Board you must specify your salary expectations for the position. Until September 2022, you were asked to enter your net (or liquid) salary, i.e. the amount you will receive after applying the legal deductions in each country (corresponding to pension, taxes, insurance, etc.).

As of October 2022, the gross salary, i.e. the amount before applying the legal deductions, will be requested.

Why the change?

Get on Board is an international job platform, focused on companies and talent from all over Latin America, and other sectors such as the United States and Europe. In the vast majority of countries, gross salary is negotiated at the time of hiring, so to avoid confusion, we have maintained a common language for all: gross salary and in dollars.

How will I know if the salary I should enter in my application should be Net or Gross?

Each job must specify the gross salary from now on, but there is a transition period. If you apply for a job where the net (liquid) salary is shown, the company will be able to see that the amount is net.

Once all jobs have their gross salary specified, you should always enter the gross amount when you apply.

It is important that, during the transition period, when applying for a job, you check in the 'salary expectation' field the format in which you should enter it (Net or Gross).
