10 Apr Everything you always wanted to know about salaries (but were afraid to ask)
Salaries are not typically a topic for polite dinner conversation — or any conversation, for that matter. Outside of negotiations occurring in the confines of an office or contract revisions, discussion of wages is often met with “We don’t disclose that information,” “I’m not permitted to say,” or another gatekeeper phrase.
We’re breaking the silence with a treasure trove of data on what occupations and job titles are the city and state’s most lucrative. And we’ve talked with major players in various industries about what people in their career path might earn, from rookies to veterans. Some of what we found might surprise you. And if you’re negotiating your own salary any time soon, we have some tips for you. Hopefully, the conversation we’ve started in these pages will make your next salary negotiation smoother and more informed — and help give you a better view through the window salaries provide into Albuquerque’s economy.
