Does Education Make A Difference In My Salary?

An education does in fact make a difference to your salary. Not only will you be considered for higher level positions, but you will be able to progress quicker up the corporate ladder. A diploma or degree usually increases your potential earning by around $9,000. Going into the job market without a high school diploma will usually earn you an average of $20,000 to $23,000 per year, with each level of education pushing you around $8,000 to $10,000 more per annum.
