Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Employment Counselors with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Salaries for inexperienced workers average out to $36K, and those with five to 10 years' experience earn a higher median of $34K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $39K. Employment Counselors who surpass 20 years on the job report pay that isn't as high as one would expect; the median compensation for this crowd sits around $42K.
