A great place to start is to complete comparative research to see what the career salary of a designer within your region has to offer. You can create different scenarios via website/apps (Glassdoor, Job Search, Indeed, and Linkedin) , to give yourself an idea based on the individual strengths you have to offer, years you're studied (regional salary varies), and the current market value within your area to date. Another path to consider is to review and interview with different talent agencies to see what salary advice they can personally offer you as you have fresh eyes within the market. They love eager individuals who have great minds and are willing to work hard.
Wishing you all the best within your future career.
Mandy recommends the following next steps:
I often encourage people to share what their salaries are because I think salary transparency is incredibly important, especially to ensure people are paid equally for the same experience/tenure/skills, despite differences in age, race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. One colleague of mine told me he was able to find more specific salary information in Reddit threads.
It's a great idea to find people in the location where you want to work who you know will be open and honest about typical salaries for the specific type of designer role you're looking for.
I would search on Glassdoor.com for a specific company. Typically an entry-level salary for a designer in a tech company would be around 60K + benefits. Design studios or advertising agencies would be around 40-50K. That's based on my experience in New York and San Francisco. Good luck!
