Since I first began this blog, a few people have asked me if ship broker salaries are under pressure.
I mentioned previously that a junior shipbroker should be earning USD 80,000 within 3 years of starting in the Industry - if they play it smart.
I also alluded to various salary bandwidths for ship brokers of different levels of experience.
Reviewing those figures today I believe they still stack up fairly well. I think if the market remains in the doldrums then first we will see some layoffs and then salaries may slide a little. This has yet to happen to any major degree. And as discussed previously, with every contraction comes opportunities. We all need to be placed well in order to take advantage of these opportunities.
