Seems fair, ask for 70 and work your way down to 65.

65k is high for a junior, but you could try!

Depends on what agency. Did you check GlassDoor? Seems like you have a lot going for you but these days everyone has so many extra internships or specialized college training. Hard to stand out and demand more. See if juniors get OT. I think that’s a law in LA. NY too. 😉

Saatchi LA is where I was a junior. To be fair it was a while ago, but I got 55. No OT.

Oooo maybe you’ll be on my team😉 I’d say push for 65k and see what they say

A recent Jr. AD hire got 55K right out of college at the same agency. I have more experience so I guess you are right. I’ll aim higher. Their range is tight online so hopefully I can break out of it a bit. Thanks!

Glassdoor says 52-58k range but it’s based off 1 report. This is for Saatchi LA.
