Thought I'd pose this question.

1.How much are you making a year (in USD rounded to the neares 0 or 5)?

2.What certifications do you have? (including Degrees)

Systems Engineer, about $55K.  I'm probably doing better than most - in spite of the economy.

- Bachelor's in English

- 3 Associate degrees in various Computer Science disciplines.

- A+, N+, CDIA+, S+, HTI+, Proj+, i-N+

- MCSE NT 4, MCDST, almost MCSA 2003

- CNE and MCNE Novell 5 & 6

- A couple other odds and ends certs.

- Don't forget, about 7 years experience in IT.

HOWEVER, all of the above would be meaningless alone.  I am also told I present myself well to others, and I am a team player.  

I've known too many very excellent techs whose careers are hindered because they are not effective communicators, and/or they are perceived as horses' rear-ends.

An ability to show that I am willing to learn (by a track record of education), and my interpersonal communication have both contributed to my success.  The job I'm in now remained unfilled for a year - although there were many applicants and interviewees before me.  My boss told me he was continually unimpressed with the personalities and/or willingness to learn of prior candidates. He isn't the first manager to express the above, and I've spoken with several recruiters who've expressed the same frustrations.
