about 55k  , with 5+ years IT experience (certs on left).  I am a network engineer at a medium-sized Managed Services provider in the Chicago suburbs.   Getting paid somewhat under the market rate, but I feel like I need more experience before going for the big payday  (about 2.5 years of hands-on Cisco).  I have a BA in English and soem grad work in History.. changed careers at 29, moved to Chicago from Dallas when the bottom temporarily fell out of the Dallas IT market.

$35,000 a year.

A+ cert. Never worked for anyone but myself. Worked fastfood for 3 years after ceritification. Got into an arguement with my manager one day. He said I would never amount to anything. I quit on the spot, went to the Dept. of revenue. then city hall. Put $2000 into some advertising. I ran a pc repair shop out of my spare room for 6 months. Then I had enough credit and money to open a store. although my store does more than just fix computers.

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

Job #2: (6hrs/wk): Teching IT certification classes: approx $20

Job #3: (20hrs/mo): Inherited IT business from a friend: $36k (
Total: Just over $150K

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.


Age: 20
Salary: $33k, pro-rated, I'm Hourly
Certs: CCNA, Java SCJP, A+, Network+, 70-291, 70-270
Experience: At least 5+, but 3 years professional exp.  Been computing, hardware,software since I was 5. C++ then Java Programming since 15.  So...I feel I have more than 3 years "experience"
Job Title: Technical Support Specialist (basically Helpdesk)
Location: Seattle
Typical week: 50+ hours (I get paid for 40)

That's great that your typical work week is ~45 hours.  During this summer, I recently started at my current company, pre-IPO but debt-free and been growing 100% for 5 years..be weary of small companies! (People might already know this).

I averaged 50+ hours a week :eek:, sometimes 60 hours and I am non-exempt (hourly employee). Some people might not mind working more, and I didn't at first, but it sure doesn't take 50 - 60 hour weeks long to dislike your job.  I get zero overtime pay, and my manager gives the usual disposition of whatever needs to be done, needs to be done (not all his fault though, its the structure of the company). Then he usually proceeds and goes home. I get ridden like nobody's business. I'd be OK with 50+ hours if I was salary. Working 50 - 60 hours and paid 40 when you're hourly gives you the impression that you're terribly ripped off.

Company has a great work environment (Top 3 best to work for in Northwest - 2004) but man I need out.  Currently looking for a new job after being there for 3 months.

Man I have to commend you for that.  I had very humble beginnings, a story like that simply was great.  Your shop doesn't even have to earn a great deal, you've already accomplished a feat in my opinion. What a way to show'em eh? Smiley

$40k ($US) and working as Tech Support Analyst (2nd level support) for Australian state government. Job is 35-hr week, no weekends, no on-call plus 4 weeks paid holidays with 17.5% loading (extra pay for holidays). Also has flex days and flexible work hours. Unreal after 20 years of trades work in the rain and heat! 2 pay raises in 12 months. Most family-friendly job I've ever had. Loving it.

Had 18 months IT work experience (1st level) before this and a 2-year tech diploma in Network Engineering and just finished Bach degree in Applied IT. Certs on left (my employer could care less about them though). If you're considering IT, I'd encourage you to go for it. Huge shortages here in Oz plus lowest unemployment rate in 30 years.

Senior Systems Engineer/Administrator
6 Years Experience (Started as Dialup Technical Support for 11$/hr) now making 95kish (non-exempt meaning I get overtime).  With about a 8000-10000$/yr bonus.  I have job hopped, constantly.. every year or two I get a new job with a large jump in pay increase.

I have my CCNA, MCP, A+ and MOUS.  Wink

Certifactions don't mean squat.  Its your personality and your ability to wine and dine the interviewer!  You'll also have to pass a difficult technical quiz most likely during your interviews..

I am however all about the "wearing your stars and stripes" and plan on now obtaining my CCNP, PMP, and MCSE.  As well as some little ones like Filemaker Pro Certifactions, Redhat, Etc.
