Hi, Sorry for the off-topic post but I was hoping to get some ideas on what the job market is paying for someone with the titles Network Administrator and Senior Network Administrator. I know the economy isn't great right now and that our job market has taken a hit in the salary ranges. I also searched various sites for salary comparisons but I am not sure where they get their numbers from. One site showed that the base pay for a Sr. Network Admin in my area (Clark, NJ) is between 70 and 90k. I don't know if it's based on certifications or not. I work for a Credit Union and they are looking to "restructure" the salary ranges and wanted to put my two cents in. I have no certifications, everything I know I basically taught myself or learned from others. Here are some of my skills and experience: I have an Associates Degree in Computer Technology and am currently attending Rutgers University for a BS in Computer Science. Exchange 5.5/2000 Administrator - 2 years ISA Server 2000/Internet/Proxy/Firewall Administrator - 2 years Cisco Routers - 2 years Windows 2000/NT Network Administrator - 4 years Help Desk - 4 years PC/Laptop Rollouts - 4 years I am also responsible for all network and email backup. My job also is requiring me to have a working knowledge of HTML, XML, Java, and C++ (though I don't know what the hell for and no one will give me a straight answer) I have a 2 page list of daily procedures that I have to check off every day. Some of these tasks include: Ensuring backups were successful Checking logs on servers Monitoring servers Applying patches and hot fixes Help Desk Support We also have kiosks that I have to support and monitor as well as a phone system. My list just keeps getting longer and longer each day and my wallet doesn't get any thicker. Thanks in advance for any input or advice. Paul.
