I was wondering if anyone knew what the standard graduate wage was? For example a person with an Honors Degree in Interior Architecture? How much can they expect to be paid, initially?
Your comments would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance. 🙂

peanuts if you can even find a job…
With the amount of people unemployed and people from other parts of the EU there will always be someone cheaper with 3-4 years experience. I’m guessing in the low to mid 20,000 range starting positions in the OPW for an actual architect I have seen 39,000 public service is a better deal…

thanks for that reply, i figured as much its a dog eat dog world out there. I’m 37 have been in the work force since I was 18, but have just graduated in to my new career so its very difficult to take such a huge wage cut when I’ve so much experience working but obviously not much expericence in archtiecture, oh well, I’ll just keep trucking. Thanks for your reply

I wouldn’t necessarily agree with Missarchi.
Its difficult to say given the state of the economy and jobs market at the moment, but in the last two years the starting wage for a graduate architect would have been in the low thirties with some offices matching the OPW. I suppose offices are being more discerning now however and an interior architecture firm may be different.
Also I wouldn’t write off any experience you have in other industries as irrelevant. Any management/ business experience is very valuable so don’t undersell yourself.

thanks reddy, I’m working with an architect at the moment, but not getting very good money at present, but also not quite sure how to broach the subject, never was 🙂
But I’ll definitely have to have another chat as I cannot surive on what I’m getting at present.
thanks for the comments very much appreciated

I’m not trying to stir shit here but in some countries there is minimum wage for a profession ect.
which is generally double the actual minimum wage so not to bad but not amazing.
We have partnership agreements in ireland???
