What Should Be My Expectations For Pay Be?
Here is my situation. Since I have been working at my current job (2.5 years), I’ve decided to complete a business degree honours at an university. I am finishing my degree next April. I’m also done the CPM next May. I want to know when I’m looking for a new job, should I factor in my higher education into my salary expectation? I’m not sure what a staff/intermediate accountant would make in industry? I work in the accounting/Payroll field. My position, bookkeeper is a mid-range position not entry level. The job title does not match up to the responsibilities of the job. I do a lot more than my title, bookkeeper. I would be more of a senior bookkeeper or staff accountant. The firm isn’t willing to change my title for whatever reasons. I don’t get paid well because I work in public firm and is notorious for underpaying their staff compared to corporate. Also since I’m looking for a job now, should I say how far am I in the degree program? How many credits out of 120?
