The average starting salary for marketing and advertising jobs is expected to increase 3.6% in 2017, according to recent research from The Creative Group.

The Creative Group 2017 Salary Guide was based on data from North American staffing and recruiting professionals who make thousands of full-time, temporary, and project placements each year. The researchers determined projected 2017 average salary ranges for positions in the United States based on starting pay only; bonuses, incentives, and other forms of compensation were not taken into account.

Average starting pay for interactive and design positions is expected to undergo the biggest jump (5.3%) next year, the analysis found.

Front-end Web developer, mobile designer, UX designer, and content strategist are the positions expected to register the biggest 2017 increases in average starting pay.
