-to increase my salary
-to further my career, get a promotion, etc
Those two end up meaning the same thing when you think about it. No surprise I guess and I’d be the first one to admit that it was the case for me as well (and it ended up working, more on that soon!)
Last week, I came across a new survey done in Canada with CFA charterholders. The average compensation for title holders in 2011 ended up being $239,215, an 11% increase compared with 2010. Now you’d probably be right in saying that the average could be skewed if a few CFA charter holders are making millions. That makes sense. The median was actually $157,500! Still very decent right?
In case some of you live in Canada, here are the averages for CFA charterholders in a few big cities:
What are your thoughts? I certainly feel like those numbers are incredibly solid and it’d be difficult to find other titles (even the MBA) that would beat those numbers, don’t you think?
