Just remember folks, most of us didn’t get into the creative industry with hopes of a massive advertising salary (well okay, some of us did…hello, sales team). Nevertheless, even if money isn’t your primary motivator, don’t underestimate your value to a company. Look around at other opportunities in the market and know what you’re worth. Hopefully this list helped!
