How Much do Entry Level Media Jobs Pay?
As with much of life, the answer is “It depends.” Pay fluctuates by job position, where in the country the job is located, your skill level and other variables. Here are some starting points:
– Depending on the opportunity, entry level pay can range from 10/hour to 25/hour.
– If you are being hired as an independent contractor and have limited experience, chances are the pay is closer to $10/hour.
– Overtime for employees is usually time-and-a-half, but never assume-ask.
– Overtime for independent contractors/freelancers almost never exists. Again, don’t assume-ask.
