We’ve all been there. At one time or another, we’ve had to dust off our resumes and interview for jobs. Many of us have been on the other side of the job search, as hiring managers. It’s a task, I think, that’s no less challenging.
Enter ASQ’s annual QP Salary Survey. This year, in addition to the usual juicy data about how much quality professionals make, the survey contained questions for hiring managers on what they want to see in new hires. Qualifications and traits such as ASQ certifications, experience, education, personality, and Six Sigma training. Which trait would you rank as the most important?
Just to give you another teaser from the survey: The average salary for full-time quality professionals in the United States was $88,458 in 2013. In the 2012 survey, it was $86,743.
You can either read the full QP article or take a look at this illustrated infographic of key facts from the survey. Do these facts align with your experience in the quality field?
(I’d be amiss to mention that there’s also a quick video that will give you a nice preview of the survey. Watch it here.)
