The American Society of Indexers is taking a survey of members’ salaries until Friday, April 9th.
(Unfortunately, it still reflects ASI’s emphasis on back-of-the-book indexes because many of the multiple choice answers do not include selections for indexing for the Web or on the Web, indexing in formats or arrangements that are not like a back-of-the-book style, and people whose entire job is indexing, not people like me who do indexing as a portion of their job duties. The questions are also a little confusing. Whoever designed the survey either doesn’t know much about the field of indexing or didn’t vet it with enough people to catch some obvious problems. I wonder how inaccurate the gathered data is going to be.)
