By Jon Carlos Rodriguez/ABS-CBNnews.com – Those who are specialized in information technology (IT) and have extensive technical know-how are the highest paid employees in the country, according to the latest salary report of JobStreet.com.

JobStreet said its Annual Salary Report 2015 revealed that employees in IT-software and IT-network, system, and database administration are the best paid, and consistently ranked in the top two spots across all position levels.

For junior executives or those with 1 to 4 years of experience, IT/computer-software jobs pay the highest with average earnings of P37,784 per month.

Those specializing in IT/computer network/database admin are paid an average monthly salary of P33,029.

Junior lawyers, meanwhile, ranked third with average earnings of P27,033 per month.

Rounding out the list of top 10 highest paid junior executives are those specializing in actuarial science/statistics (P27,032); engineering electronics/communication (P26,379); public relations/communications (P25,153); technical and helpdesk support (P25,078); sales-telesales/telemarketing (P24,400); training and development (P23,762); and customer service (P23,369).

For supervisors or those with 5 or more years of experience, the highest paid are again those specializing in IT/computer-software with average earnings of P67,478 per month.

The IT/computer network/database admin specialization again came in second with average monthly salaries of P52,319.

Supervisors specializing in customer care get a noticeably high salary upgrade of more than P10,000 from customer care junior executives.

In the managerial levels, IT specialists still maintained the top 2 spots with IT/computer-software specialists getting paid P100,838 a month and IT/computer network/database admin specialists receiving monthly paychecks at an average of P81,274.

IT/computer-software specialists are usually hired by computer-software firms, business process outsourcing (BPO), call centers, and banking or financial services.

IT/computer network/database admin specialists are typically employed in insurance; transportation and logistics; and utilities and power.

JobStreet.com’s 2015 study, conducted from October 1 to December 31, 2014, was based on actual salaries posted by employers on the online job site.

Basic salaries cited in the report did not include leave credits, medical benefits, insurance, and other incentives.

JobStreet.com said that for this year’s report, the focus was shifted to specializations to make the process of jobseeking easier for specialists.

“We want to keep the talents and the jobseekers informed of the going rate for their talent,” Philip Gioca, country manager of JobsStreet.com Philippines, told ABS-CBNnews.com at the sidelines of the Annual Salary Report launch held in Makati on Thursday.

Gioca added that the study will also give employees information on offering competitive salaries to applicants.

“We want to tell employees that these are the salaries now of the spectrum of jobs in the country, so that they will have a conscious effort to make sure that their salaries are at par,” he said.
