Salaries

Junior copywriter in nyc making 58.5k. In one year, I’ve had four projects produced incl two tv campaigns. I’ve also been in two pitches. With this info, what would be a fair salary to negotiate?

You’re already on the higher end of the jr range. But you could probably move agencies and get a nice bump.

OP: Are you basing this belief on what you've actually seen/heard around your agency? Because otherwise, unfortunately, the reason to believe you won't get a raise where you are is that most people bump their salaries by moving agencies. If your agency actually pays raises and gives good opportunities, then good on you.

I think inevitably you’ll have to move, but asking them to drop the “junior” from the title and maybe $70K as a reach can’t hurt, but if you’ve only been in business one year that’s a big reach no matter how much work you’ve produced.

It won’t. Always ask for more.

Good time to make a move. And get a bump.

SO has issues keeping it up. I’ve asked what I can do to make it easier/more enjoyable/etc. but he just has to be in a very specific mood. Understandable but disappointed as I have a higher drive
