what is gross salary?

what is net salary?
Net salary is your ‘take home’ pay. It is the amount of money that is left after taxes and other deductions have been taken out. It is what you will receive in your bank account on salary payment day.
Which are the highest paying jobs?
According to Randstad's HR Trends survey over the years, job profiles with some of the highest salaries can be found in technology, construction, engineering/production, legal with salaries starting at €1,400 per month (14 salaries per year). Of course, other profiles could also offer opportunities for good salaries and benefits depending on the company and/or sector.
Keeping in mind that many factors can influence salaries, including level of skills, experience, location, education levels, and certifications.
The highest salaries in technology relate to profiles that are high in demand and currently have a shortage of qualified and skilled talents. Positions associated with cloud computing, cybersecurity, and big data are sought after. Managers, engineers, lawyers and architects with experience also tend to have higher salaries as they too are in demand and supply is small.
Generally speaking, entry-level positions across the board have lower salaries but as more experience and skills is gained salaries will increase.
Overall, our latest HR Trends survey recorded an upward trend in salaries across all profiles, More information on salaries and HR trends can be found by clicking here.
