Call it the law of averages...

Some out there are making $125k others are making $25k...average it to $75k and post a survey. Then run a radio ad that says the "average salary for an MCSE is $72K..." and evey washed up stripper and ditch digger in your greater metropolitan area wants to get into IT.

Its purely BS in my opinion, but it keeps the training companies in the green.

What do you think I would be worth average? Certs listed to your left. I have 5 years REAL experience. The experience includes 3 years administering, troubleshooting, designing, and implementing ( not in that order Tongue ) basically any Windows based network you can think of. ( 100 users or less, no enterprise level routed networks spanning 50 cities ). Two years were as a service technician for an OEM. I have serviced, literally, around 3000 PC's so my hardware troubleshooting skills are polished. I work for a company that "farms out" IT services, so I have pretty broad networking experience due to the huge amount of setups I have worked on. What does that type of exp/certs rate? Average? Just curious on your opinions.

I haven't lived in San Diego since 1989 (and even then the bill was footed by the tax payers), so it is hard to say what So. Cal. salaries are these days...naturally it makes a difference when you compare salaries for a metropolitan area in California, and Piedmont, North Dakota.

I would place you in the $65-70K a year bracket, minus potential bonus since not all employers have profit sharing or incentive plans.

Consider the Source!

If I was a cert-magazine or company that were involved in certs - my reports would look exactly like that!

shit like this makes me want to contact the ftc and report this magazine and all of these schools that have all these bogus reports... i bet we could do that if we wanted to... these claims are unsubstantiated, not one person here believes them... the sad thing is people get lured into it schools with these numbers... i remeber when i 1st started school everyone was all excited and during breaks people would be talking about what kind of cars they were gonna buy will all of the big bucks they were going to make after they graduated... with all of these schools getting luring people into it it just makes it harder for the people already in it

nicely said!
I guess for marketing purposes, it's only logical that one would put a report like this! They are not telling lies, just mislead you!!! and they'd say that these'r two different things Cheesy
