Things Are Looking Up

September—the end of summer, school back in session, and the AUGI Salary Survey! Under the expert direction of Melanie Stone, the 17th Annual AUGI Salary Survey presents data on numerous aspects of AUGI members’ professional lives.

Salaries, sure, but also benefits, pay raises, satisfaction with current positions, education level, workload growth, percentage of members who changed jobs in the last year, working after hours, and trends.

After you’ve studied the survey, be sure to check out all the other informative articles in the September issue.
