I'm a licensed clinical social worker and am looking for a position that pays 80k plus.

It depends a great deal on where you live. I have recruited LCSWs for a large managed care company in the past. I can tell you with 3+ years of post masters experience the salary ran about $55-65K.

I've never seen anything close to $80K, but I'm not in touch with the LCSW market in Sacramento.

Most jobs 80K plus for social workers are federal or administrative.

In the south, Tennessee and Georgia,
an LCSW and 15+ years of experience
yields a salary of about 35,000 to 46,000 and jobs are few and far between.

I've found that working in a school or hospital pays the most. 60K for schools with an MSW. 70K as an LCSW at a hospital. These jobs are in California wher cost of living is also more.
