Just to add to the previous answers, entry compensation is very important but you should equally consider the job experience/learning you will get this from the job, industry growth and what will be able to build into your resume with the job. And also organizational culture, work-life balance are also very important.

Just to add to the previous answers, entry compensation is very important but you should equally consider the job experience/learning you will get from your first job which you will be able to leverage for the next. Also you should look at the type of industry and whether this is something you will be interested in and whether the growth of industry is stable and healthy. And also organizational culture, work-life balance are also very important.

Margaret’s Answer

Hi James,

I think the average salary can depend on many factors including area of country/market cost of living, industry, and size of company. When evaluating an opportunity, in addition to salary, remember to consider other benefits that factor into total compensation such as :
- health insurance, possibly dental and vision insurance benefits
- 401k corporate match (Free money, always make sure you do the minimum amount to obtain the corporate match)
- tuition reimbursement
- incentive pay/bonuses

Good luck!
Margaret

Erin’s Answer

There are already two answers with specific amounts but some factors to impact those numbers include the type of company you work at, the city you work in, and discipline within marketing. You can absolutely make a living right out of college, but you should specifically think about the types of companies you are interested in working at and the type of work you'd like to do to get a better sense of compensation and compensation growth.
