So if I want to be an Art Director for an Advertising Agency... how much do you think I would get paid?

Also, what jobs would I have to have prior to being an Art Director? Or would I just jump right into that position??? :)

Thanks for your help... Any other info you would like to share would be great... thanks again!

You definitely won't jump into the AD position. If you are at the beginning of your career, I would suggest trying to get an internship at an agency whose work you like. Make sure you are doing ads at the internship- then you will have work in your book on real accounts. If your work is good, you will have a shot as a jr. AD at that agency, or another one. If you aren't in the beginning of the career, I would suggest taking an advertising class and building a book. Depending on location, I would say Jr. AD would get around 40k- that's consumer, and that's based on NY range. On the other hand, Jr.AD in pharmaceutical can start at 50K. Hope this helps.
