Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Child, Family, or School Social Workers with Counseling skills with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Salaries of relatively inexperienced workers fall in the neighborhood of $36K, but folks who have racked up five to 10 years see a notably higher median of $43K. Child, Family, or School Social Workers with Counseling skills claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $43K. After two decades in the workforce, the average Social Worker generally earns more than ever; median pay for this group is estimated at $51K.
