Just wondering how hard it is to find a job making 40k in Dallas - preferably Plano, Frisco in admin role? Is that salary considered alot? I am from NYC and have 9 years in a large company doing analysis work, but specific to my company, so would probably transfer to an admin role outside of my company. Most likely would buy a house with little to no mortgage, so just wondering if that's realistic.

What kind of analysis. My company does IT Analysis and most of us are in the 6 figures. From my experience, IT and Business analyst in the DFW area make 75K+ consistently. The issue you will have is finding a consistent work place and not doing contract type work. Good look.

Hello,

$40k is realistic. Especially if you have 9 years analysis experience. Do you have a bachelor's degree?

If you have a degree in what people call a "hard" major...i.e. accounting, engineering, programming etc. $40k should be the bare minimum starting point in salaries.

I think $40k should be reasonable to come by if you are applying for true "Administration" roles. Some jobs are called "admin" but are really masks for secretarial, reception, or clerk type work. But I'm sure you can view the job description and be able to filter out the lower end of the admin scope roles that you are not interested in.

Thanks! Yes, i have a Bachelors Degree in Business Management - which is pretty broad. I am not in IT, just looking more for an admin stress free basic job so I can focus more on family - really the point of moving from NY to Texas!

$35-40k is an entry level analyst's salary which you shouldn't have too much trouble finding.

I think it may be helpful if you tell us specifically what you mean by "admin stress free basic job" and more specifically what you mean by "admin".

Honestly I think anyone could pull 40K easily in this area, even as a customer service rep for an insurance company or something.

If by "Admin" you mean high level Administrative Assistant, if you are good you can expect to earn quite a bit more than $40k. For a simple and low stress job, I still think $40 is quite realistic.

Yes, I mean an administrative assistant, or general office work. Thanks for the replies!

Have you registered with a good staffing agency? I'm a recruiter with a local agency and a majority of the admin roles we staff are in the 40-50k range. Totally do-able! Good luck in your job search.

Starting assistants in my company make 30k and experienced make 50k plus. Thus, I would think that 40k is very doable.
