People who have worked or are working now in Lithuania have an idea of how much certain specialists earn these days. However, those who are only deciding on the sphere of professional activity should find out which specialities guarantee better income nowadays, writes www.delfi.lt with reference to www.cvbankas.lt.

The job search web portal CVbankas.lt has conducted an online survey among job seekers and employees. The survey enquired the people of what specialities were earning most and least in Lithuania.

The results of the survey showed that the obvious and expected leaders were IT specialists. The majority of those who participated in the survey believe that it is particularly IT specialists that have better career perspectives and are in demand in today’s job market. It is believed, the survey indicated, that IT specialists should not be afraid of losing their jobs and can simply enjoy high salaries.

The respondents of the survey also maintained that IT specialists are followed by people of legal professions: lawyers, notaries, attorneys, judges, trustees and others.

The third place, in terms of lucrative rewards, went to medical specialists, such as oncologists, surgeons, gynaecologists, pharmacists and others.

Among other professional spheres that bring most income were banking, financial analysis, engineering, biochemistry, physics, logistics, advertising and energy.

The results of the survey also showed that unqualified workers tend to get the lowest salaries in Lithuania nowadays. This group was described as consisting of unskilled, manual labour workers. The respondents further concluded that cleaners, sales people, cashiers, teachers, tailors, social workers, secretaries and those working in the general service sphere get the lowest income.

Nevertheless, the employees that participated in the survey stated that the professional sphere does not necessarily determine the size of the salary that could be expected. Sometimes, the respondents postulated, the salary depends not on the speciality, but rather on the job title and the quality of work. Good specialists, that really try their best and appropriately fulfil their duties, are said to be often noticed and duly evaluated.
