What Wage Can I Expect To Earn in the Office Management Field?
MHCC Research in 2007, using information from the State of Oregon, defined a living wage as $10 or more per hour, which equates to approximately $19,200 per year. Program graduates each received offers ranging between $24,000 and $36,000 per year to start. These same positions offered medical benefits and two weeks paid vacation, some including dental, vision, IRAs, parking, and year-end bonuses.
Workers must have related work experience to gain the necessary skills for these occupations. However, those workers with an associate degree have a competitive advantage in this labor market, and completing the internship provides an employer with a strong indication of work experience abilities.
