First, thanks to all of you who responded to our salary survey request. We were so excited to hear from so many of you. And we hope to hear from even more going forward so we can keep bringing you different bits of info that you can use.
Here are just a few of the things we’ve learned so far:
–People just out of school in Montreal are faring way better than those in similar positions here in New York. We heard from assistants to designers, buyers, and marketers making anywhere from $36,000-$56,000. A similar position in NYC seems to be going for $30,000 or under.
–Though mid-level fashion PRs in London seem to be making a bit less than those in New York, which was a bit surprising to us given the expense of living in both cities. We expected more similar numbers.
–Not so shockingly a retail manager in Dubai can bring in over six figures (in US dollars).
So please send us your info if you haven’t already, we’re dying to hear more. Of course it’s totally confidential. Email us a description of what you do (and a bit about your company, no need to name names), where you live, how many years experience you have, and what you make.
