Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many but not all Educational Specialists, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. After five to 10 years, compensation can go from $38K to $46K. Pay amounts to $53K after 10 to 20 years. After 20 years of work in the field, Educational Specialists typically earn $66K and go on to enjoy solid increases in earnings. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up about a third of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 13 percent. One to nine years of experience is standard for most employees in this area; more than half of respondents fit between this range.
