Find out where to work in the USA if you want to earn the most money and have the most benefits â€“ thatâ€™s if you can get the job!
Last month I wrote an article on how much does a graphic designer earn however I didnâ€™t mention the places that earned the most money, hence this article.
According to the design salaries survey carried out by AIGA in 2007 to 11,000 graphic design firms over the USA, these are the places to work if you want to earn the most cash and have the best benefits.
Top 10 Places (in order)
- New York
- San Fransisco
- Los Angeles
Not only can you earn the most in these places you also get other awesome benefits such as:
- Longer Time off
- Better Medical and dental insurance
- General Insurance
- A Retirement Fund
- More Pay (woohoo)
- Financial benefits and family care
- Personal development and health
- Transportation and mobility
- Need I say more?
However in saying all this, these places are generally a lot harder to get a job. If you need a bit of a hand, you may want to check out how to get your first job or get some outlaw design inspiration.
The Rest of the Survey
For the full survey and a break down of the numbers and locations I highly recommend you to view the pdf salary survey results of 2007. Sorry to the other countries out there, I havenâ€™t come across a survey for any other countries. Thanks to Danny for the opportunity to write a guest article on Outlaw Design Blog.
