Hello and thank you for your question! My name is***** have close to 20 years of human resource experience and I will be assisting you today.

Finding an appropriate pay range is always a challenge because you want to pay enough for the individual to be happy and stay so you're not training someone new in a few months. But at the same time, I understand you want to minimize the impact on your bot***** *****ne.

Executive assistant jobs recently posted in Baltimore, MD range anywhere from $20/hour for a part-time position to a range of $75,835 - $84,261 annually for full-time positions.

In 2014, the U.S Department of Labor - Bureau of Labor Statistics identifies the national mean hourly wage for executive secretaries and executive administrative assistants as $25.76 and the mean annual salary as $53,590 for full-time positions. In D.C, the hourly mean wage is $29.40 and the annual mean salary is $61,150. These rates increase slightly in Maryland where the mean hour wage is $29.63 and the mean annual salary is $61,630.

Hopefully these averages will help you in determining a range for the position you are looking to fill. Here are a few other considerations that you might also find helpful. As I mentioned at the outset, I'm sure you want to find a salary range that will keep your new employee happy and in place at least for a while. So one thing to look at is whether that individual really prefers a full-time position but is accepting a part-time position because they really like the opportunity or because they cannot find a full-time job at the moment that is of interest to them. If they are really seeking a full-time position, then likely you will have to pay a slightly higher wage to keep them for any length of time. If part-time is really what they are looking for, they will likely be happier at an even slightly lower wage.

Another consideration is looking at their past work and salary history. If this position will be a slight drop for them, then you might discuss with them the reason they are interested. It may be that it offers them the chance for a desired career transition which would make them happier with a salary even if it is lower than they have previously worked at. If this position is in line with past positions they have held, they might be looking to stay in a similar salary range as what they have become accustomed to.

If you need anything additional just let me know. If not, I would really appreciate your taking a minute to rate positively so I may receive credit for assisting you today. Please come back and see me next time you have a question. I'd love to help! Thanks again and have a great day! :)
