I think it depends on location, but I’ve heard around 50-60k

You’d probably get around that range, depending on your degree and previous experience of course. Ask for what you want though! The worst they could say is no

Depends on the market. Chicago 45k-55k, NY and LA 55k-65k, SF 60k-70k. Everyone else is probably on par or a little lower than than Chicago.

50 to 65k for a junior seems high to me. That seems more mid-level writer, but maybe things have changed since I was a junior (it’s been 20 years). I do know seniors in LA make 85k up to probably 110k-ish (minus the award show annual regulars). Do with that knowledge what you will 👍

Listen Copywriter 4, I’m not talking about shit from 20 years ago. I am commenting on this because I know what people were making very recently in LA and I’m also fully cognizant that things have changed since I started. I have not personally seen senior writer salaries in the 125k range in LA. I’ve seen 120k in SF within the last year. I’m sure they’re out there, but that’s not what people I know are making at FT gigs. I have not seen anything in the 115k to 125k range (although 115k ain’t much more than 110), unless this is what recruiters are giving to hot general ad agency clients. I’ve seen a few in-house gigs at 110k. Having done a brief Google search, it looks like junior salaries in LA are around 50k now. FYI, my starting salary many moons ago was 40k out of ad school, and that was higher than some others and I wasn’t hired as a junior.
