  1. It is an unfortunate situation, I agree. At least people have the opportunity to view the pay scale before taking the time to apply. That’s not much, but it’s something.

  2. *sigh* $22/hour would be a huge step on the payscale for me, lol. I make more speaking at a conference than I got for a raise last year. Speak at 3 conferences, and I make more in 4-6 hours than my cumulative bonuses will be through 2010.

    Karlyn is right. Time for higher ed to start thinking big picture. There is a huge waste of financial resources on campuses that could be attracting quality employees.

    So from my end… GREAT salary! ;)

  3. You get bonuses, Brad? That’s cool. I’m afraid you wouldn’t get a bonus at Missouri S&T.

    As for salary range: We’ve been working over many, many years to improve the range for all of our communications and marketing staff. It continues to be a struggle, but we take baby steps. Plus the cost of living in Rolla is relatively low (and Missouri has the lowest gas prices in the nation), but there’s a trade-off in terms of lifestyle choices. It’s a great place for people who love the outdoors (fishing, canoeing, hiking, camping) but not a lot of night life.

  4. So is it confirmed then? Brad is officially moving to Missouri? ;-)

    Maybe if you sweetened the pot by throwing in part of your music collection, Andrew?

  5. You need to include the part where it says “Work with a higher ed marketing guru who runs an awesome blog.”

    Ok, so maybe not in those words. But you get the idea…a tech savvy, web savvy boss is no small asset in these days.
