Starting salaries for senior executive assistants, executive assistants, senior administrative assistants and senior office/facilities managers will rise more than 6 percent over this year, OfficeTeam says in its 2007 Salary Guide.
Example: Senior executive assistants will see average starting salaries of $39,000 to $54,750, a 6.5 percent increase over 2006 (see chart below for details).
But even relatively green admins can ratchet up their pay by hitting the books. OfficeTeam found that employers are willing to pay an average of 7 percent more for designations such as “Certified Administrative Professional” and “Certified Professional Secretary,” and an average of 10 percent more for “Microsoft Office Specialist” certification.
“Firms recognize [that] they must offer competitive compensation to attract the best employees,” says Diane Domeyer, executive director of OfficeTeam.
