Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

My guess is that it is typical for a job developer in the bay to make anywhere from 30K - 45K a year. Job Developers AKA Employment Specialist may also make 50k+ if you are in the right organization, such as a community college, university or a well funded government program/institution.

As mentioned by Daniel Newell in San Jose CA. Salaries range from low 30k to high 40k except in certain situation where there is a large budget within the organization.

The skills that you should learn are:

1) The ability to form relationships with employers as well as the population that you are working with (You are serving both).

2) Organization skills, be able to organize and report your
job information and related data.

3) Time Management, use your time wisely. You will find that you do not have a lot of it to complete what is needed to be done.

Hi Milton: before you think about high salary earnings with benefits- prepare yourself to be the best and most qualified candidate to do this work every day.

You have to keep in touch with job trends; who the employers are; and build up your own employer/recruiter data base.

Right now---I think New York state pays very well (e.g. $30 - higher) per hour with benefits.

You have to ask yourself are you doing this work to really help people or doing a job that gives you a big salary and prestige?

You can get jobs in this area with only a Bachelors degree in any area; but, they do want experienced people who know how to secure real full-time jobs for people wanting them. Talk to other professionals in the field; look at the masters program on-line with Assumption College out of Worcester, Mass. Ask to speak with Lee Pearson the Director there, and you might want to think about earning a masters degree part-time while you are working. This is the best time to be engaged in a higher education track. The climate for employment will hopefully change soon, and you will be paid a higher salary with a masters degree and experience in the field. Take a smaller salary first to learn all you have to know---then, update your existing resume and start looking for better opportunities.

This is a big country. The North seems to pay higher; N.Y. state, et al. Rhode Island is also a very cool place for people to live and work in. We have Green Airport which is smaller than Logan in Boston, and easy access to other states. Best of luck
