Age: 36
Experience: Over 15 years
Location: California Boondocks
Certs: CISSP MCSE MCDBA MCSA CCNA Linux+

Job #1 (Full-Time): Network/Systems/Security Admin: $100k

Job #2: (6hrs/wk): Teching IT certification classes: approx $20 (depends on the number of classes I teach a year)

Job #3: (20hrs/mo): Inherited IT business from a friend: $36k (value of monthly contracts)

Even though working three jobs sounds like much I really only work about 45 hours a week, and I get 4 weeks off every year.

Don't be afraid of paper certs. Sure, they may get an interview - but if you can't prove to an employer that you know more than some pretender you have a lot more than paper certs to worry about!

Wouldn't that mean job #1 isn't full time???  Wink


But good for you. It's always great to see IT people making some decent dough.

Sort of. I work for a national company, #1 in its industry, that considers 37.5 hours a week to be full-time. Odd, I know. I don't really know why they do that, but they also give the entire company eight weeks of half-day Fridays in the summer. I don't complain.

Both are a great perk to someone like me that wants to take on additional stuff.

If I work the "average" for all three in a week it's more like 48.5 hours, but I don't teach every week, nor do I always do my 20 hours a month in job #3. So 45 hours is about right - though the last eight weeks have actually been more like 56 hours a week, which I hate doing.

That ends this week.

It was Cisco's old security cert, Cisco Security Specialist 1.  They added one more test and made it the CCSP now.  The CSS-1 is actually retired.  I just have to pass SAFE to get the CCSP.

Just got a job offer for Operations Engineer. They offer 30K a year for 84 hours every two weeks. No degrees yet but they offer tuition reimbursement and 34 payed days off after your first year (6 from day one). Not too bad I think for someone not even with a degree, any IT experience and just the few certs listed aside.
