What skills should you learn to increase your salary?
The salaries listed on Indeed are extremely over-exaggerated. Assistants make an average of $20,000 a year and only need a high school diploma. Actual Librarians MUST possess a Masters in Library & Information Science. The average Librarian salary is only $40,000. That number will vary depending on the state you are employed in, how long you have been a Librarian, and what TYPE of Librarian you are. Technology Librarians will make more but they also need a great deal of computer skills.
I am currently a Librarian and I would NOT recommend this field. You will come out of grad school owing about 70-90k and you will make only about 40k to start. Plus, you have to deal with the public which can be quite ugly.
