Is a Master's degree or an MBA worth it? Should you pursue higher education?

A Master's degree program or any post-graduate program in Japan costs anywhere from 2,570,000 Yen(s) to 7,720,000 Yen(s) and lasts approximately two years. That is quite an investment.

You can't really expect any salary increases during the study period, assuming you already have a job. In most cases, a salary review is conducted once education is completed and the degree has been attained.

The figures provided here are averages of numbers. Those figures should be taken as general guidelines. Salary increments will vary from person to person and depend on many factors, but your performance and contribution to the success of the organization remain the most important factors in determining how much and how often you will be granted a raise.

Japan / All Professions

The term 'Annual Salary Increase' usually refers to the increase in 12 calendar month period, but because it is rarely that people get their salaries reviewed exactly on the one year mark, it is more meaningful to know the frequency and the rate at the time of the increase.

How to calculate the salary increment percentage?

The annual salary Increase in a calendar year (12 months) can be easily calculated as follows: Annual Salary Increase = Increase Rate x 12 ÷ Increase Frequency

“The average salary increase in one year (12 months) in Japan is 6%.”

Types of Bonuses Considered

Individual Performance-Based Bonuses

The most standard form of bonus where the employee is awarded based on their exceptional performance.

Company Performance Bonuses

Occasionally, some companies like to celebrate excess earnings and profits with their staff collectively in the form of bonuses that are granted to everyone. The amount of the bonus will probably be different from person to person depending on their role within the organization.

Goal-Based Bonuses

Granted upon achieving an important goal or milestone.

Holiday / End of Year Bonuses

These types of bonuses are given without a reason and usually resemble an appreciation token.

Bonuses Are Not Commissions!

People tend to confuse bonuses with commissions. A commission is a prefixed rate at which someone gets paid for items sold or deals completed while a bonus is in most cases arbitrary and unplanned.


What makes a position worthy of good bonuses and a high salary?

The main two types of jobs

Revenue GeneratorsSupporting Cast

Employees that are directly involved in generating revenue or profit for the organization. Their field of expertise usually matches the type of business.

Employees that support and facilitate the work of revenue generators. Their expertise is usually different from that of the core business operations.

Example:
A graphics designer working for a graphics designing company.

Example:
A graphic designer in the marketing department of a hospital.


Revenue generators usually get more and higher bonuses, higher salaries, and more frequent salary increments. The reason is quite simple: it is easier to quantify your value to the company in monetary terms when you participate in revenue generation.

“Try to work for companies where your skills can generate revenue. We can't all generate revenue and that's perfectly fine.”

Bonus Comparison by Seniority Level

Top management personnel and senior employees naturally exhibit higher bonus rates and frequencies than juniors. This is very predictable due to the inherent responsibilities of being higher in the hierarchy. People in top positions can easily get double or triple bonus rates than employees down the pyramid.

CT Technologist Average Hourly Wage in Japan


2,940JPY per hour

The average hourly wage (pay per hour) in Japan is 2,940 JPY. This means that the average CT Technologist in Japan earns approximately 2,940 JPY for every worked hour.


Hourly Wage = Annual Salary ÷ ( 52 x 5 x 8 )


The hourly wage is the salary paid in one worked hour. Usually jobs are classified into two categories: salaried jobs and hourly jobs. Salaried jobs pay a fix amount regardless of the hours worked. Hourly jobs pay per worked hour. To convert salary into hourly wage the above formula is used (assuming 5 working days in a week and 8 working hours per day which is the standard for most jobs). The hourly wage calculation may differ slightly depending on the worked hours per week and the annual vacation allowance. The figures mentioned above are good approximations and are considered to be the standard. One major difference between salaried employees and hourly paid employees is overtime eligibility. Salaried employees are usually exempt from overtime as opposed to hourly paid staff.

What Is the Salary of a Computed Tomography Technician?

By Fred Decker

The CT machine creates images from X-rays at multiple angles.

Computed tomography, also known as CT or "CAT" scanning, is one of the technologies used to create diagnostic images of living human tissues. It uses computerized technology to assemble numerous low-power X-rays into a three-dimensional picture of a section of the body, referred to as a "slice." The technologists who operate these machines are skilled professionals and are compensated accordingly.

CT Technologist Income

Every three years, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists performs a comprehensive survey of its members' compensation. In the 2010 version of that study, the average salary of a CT technologist was $60,586. Technologists' compensation varied with a number of factors, including experience. Those in their first two years of practice reported average incomes $55,920. Highly experienced CT technicians, with 20 to 30 years in the field, averaged $66,809 per year. Part of this increase reflects promotions within the department, and corresponding pay increases.

Career Path

The ASRT survey showed a clear career path, with promotions bringing notable increases in pay along with new job titles. Staff CT technologists averaged $57,239 in the 2010 data. Senior technologists averaged $66,056 per year, 15 percent higher. Supervisors earned an average income of $70,922 per year, while the CT department's program directors averaged $104,947.

Comparisons

Radiologic technology includes a number of other specialties aside from computed tomography. Radiographers, who work primarily with conventional X-rays, averaged $53,953 per year. Bone densitometers, who use X-rays to diagnose osteoporosis, averaged $56,521. Mammographers earned approximately the same as CT technologists at an average of $60,263 per year, while MRI technologists earned an average of $65,099 per year. Sonographers, who use ultrasound technology rather than radiation or magnetism to generate diagnostic images, averaged $68,821. Radiation therapists, who administer controlled doses of radiation to combat cancers, earned $79,125 per year.

Outlook

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that demand for radiologic technologists in general will grow by 28 percent between 2010 and 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. The industry-sponsored Explore Health Careers website concurs, rating employment prospects as "excellent." As the cost of equipment declines and smaller units become available, CT and other radiologic procedures are increasingly used in physicians' offices and walk-in clinics, which increases demand for technicians to operate the machinery.

High school students who are interested in radiologic or MRI technology should take courses that focus on math and science, such as anatomy, biology, chemistry, and physics.

An associate’s degree is the education typically required for radiologic and MRI technologists. There also are postsecondary education programs that lead to graduate certificates or bachelor’s degrees. Education programs typically include both academic study and clinical work. Coursework includes anatomy, pathology, patient care, radiation physics and protection, and image evaluation.

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) accredits programs in radiography and magnetic resonance, and the American Registry of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologists (ARMRIT) accredits MRI programs. Some states require candidates for licensure to complete an accredited program.
