PAY

The median annual wage for secretaries and administrative assistants was $40,990 in May 2020

Job Outlook

Overall employment of secretaries and administrative assistants is projected to decline 7 percent from 2020 to 2030.

Despite declining employment, about 324,300 openings for secretaries and administrative assistants are projected each year, on average, over the decade. All of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
