Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

SALARY PROFILE / V 2.0

Salary   Profile  /   V  2.0

Note  dated  :  18  April  2006  /  Uploaded :  15  Nov  2016

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Rahul  /  Saurabh  /  Pranav  /  Vikram  /  Rajeev  :



This is low priority

This is further to my yesterday's note ......The nth richest man  (  Salary  Profile  /  V  1.0  )

-  which , of course , is " high priority " for launch , immediately after launch of IndiaRecruiter ( Jobseeker side )

I felt that while displaying a jobseeker's " Salary Profile " graph ( in ImageBuilder ) , we need to add the following elements :


#   Race  /  Competition

Sport races are  perfect  examples where each and every participant has one / single - minded goal , viz :

-- to overtake all others and come out FIRST

No person without this instinct would ever enter this race

Career-race is no different . In shortest possible time , every executive wants to overtake his Competitors ( co-professionals ) , both in salary and in designation ( hierarchy )

While depicting / drawing SALARY PROFILE graph , we must exploit this element
We must bring it out in an Explicit / Vivid manner



#   Stagnation  /  Frustration

This is a very common feeling / sentiment among thousands of executives , who feel stagnated / stuck-in-the-rut ( groove )

They feel their salaries are growing very slowly or that they are stuck at the same level / position for a very long time

Such a feeling / sentiment is at a subconscious level and rarely shared with others in an open / diagnostic manner

When an executive sees his own SALARY PROFILE in ImageBuilder , I want him to ask ( himself , of course ! ) :


"   Where am I ?    What am I doing here ?   I don't seem to be going anywhere !

    Rest of the world ( read , " co-professionals " ), are passing me by - moving ahead  "


How can we generate these EMOTIONS in an executive, when he sees his " salary profile " ?


See attached  illustration

There will be only one box for Salary Profile ( in ImageBuilder ) , as compared with 3 boxes for Function Profile

This box will stretch across the entire width of ImageBuilder


Inside this box , will be the Salary Profile graph for his " Function "

But with following animation :

First to appear will be a graph for " MID LEVEL " ( in one colour )

After a few seconds , it will disappear and get replaced by a graph for " MANAGER LEVEL " ( another color )

After staying visible for a few seconds, that too will disappear and get replaced by a graph for ,

"  SENIOR  MANAGEMENT  LEVEL " ( third colour )


Obviously , all 3 graphs will be for executives belonging to SAME " function "

I have purposely avoided " levels " of :

*  Top Management

*  Entry Level

The entire cycle will keep repeating


This sequential " fading in " and " fading out " of graphs in different colours , will give an impression of ,

MOTION  /  MOVEMENT,

from left to right ( forward march ).


So , it will resemble a " Race " in which , " Sub populations " of executives are pressing / pushing forward ( to the right ) , towards higher salaries !


It is like a relentless WAVE - following another - WAVE  !

One can even add the figure of a surfer riding each wave ! - and trying to stay ahead of each oncoming wave !

Through this , we have achieved / captured the sentiments of.......RACE

Now , let us suppose our executive ( Mr A J Patel ) is,

*  at " Manager " level ,  and

*  drawing Rs 7 lakh / year

So , at that salary point on X axis , we show a vertical pole , on which a galloping horse , just keeps moving up & down the pole  !

Stuck  !  No horizontal movement  !

I am sure you have seen such wooden horses in small " merry go round " devices on Juhu beach

Small children love this ride . They get a feeling of horse-riding / galloping

But ,

no child is actually " Overtaking " any other child ( - despite galloping ! )

Because all children on all the horses are moving forward at the SAME speed ( keeping same distance between them )


Whole population is moving forward , but the relative positions remain the SAME


This is fine with children but not with grown-ups  !

Could there be any fun , if , in a race , all players,

>   are  " spaced " in advance......and then ,

>   run at the SAME speed  ?

That would be terribly boring !

Through a horse riding a pole , up and down , we want the Executive to read :


>   I am  here

as

>  I am stuck here  !


We have succeeded in capturing the sentiment of...........STAGNATION  /  FRUSTRATION

We have succeeded in getting Mr Patel to identify himself with the horse  !


NOTE :

*  Graphs should not fade away completely . When one is fully bright / sharp / dark , other two should be very light and slightly visible


*  Irrespective of the " Phase : , if the executive tries to " download " or " Email 

" , the appropriate / relevant graph and the horse , must get printed / shown in BRIGHT
