Although in my previous job, we had one guy who was very experienced and did parts of the job that didn't require a degree or quals, and he earned about $65,000-$70,000. But that was the absolute max he was able to earn without quals, no matter how many years he worked there.

My dh earns 70k soon to be 75k a year doing a job that requires no formal qualifications only a 12wk course provided for by the company he works for. I think this is an excellent salary for someone without a degree!!!!

EA (as in 'executive assistants - a PA for an 'executive', or partner) in Melbourne can earn 100,000. Totally different in country areas though

oh thanks Hannahly - that does make sense. I never realised an EA was a proper thing. haha! I was offered what I was told was the same job for a different company in Mel and they were going to pay me $90k but I wanted to move back to the country. Anyway they said I would be an EA - I thought it was just the same thing as a PA? But my boss has his own business so maybe it's all kinda the same in financial planning??
Maybe I should get new business cards that say EA..

It's hard to make the commitment to study or train to improve your income as well, as you often go backwards first. My partner earned 50-something for years as an employment consultant (no quals). He had pretty much hit the ceiling unless he went to management, which isn't him.
So he studied psych at uni full time for 4 years, worked pt or not at all for that period so earnt bugger all, probably about 25k in hecs, and now is in a grad job for at least 2 years where he is earning 45k a year.
but eventually, he will earn more. but he basically has to earn less for 6 years to earn more.
