John:
Forget that strategy. What you see on Salary.Com is meant to be a guideline and cant be used the way you intend.  This firms salaries are this firms salaries and may or maynot come close to 1,2,3,4, so dont play that game as you can only lose.  Use your current or most recent salary as a starting point let them make YOU an offer.  Your decision needs to be based on more that just $.
Being in the HR game for as long as you have you should know how the game is played by this stage.  GET your degree.
Good luck
