So next semester I will be graduating with my associates and I am starting to look at potential landing spots for when I graduate.
I am curious what the approximate market value of my skills is at. I know that there are a lot of variables at work like the cost of living, the demand in my area, my specific resume, etc. but I was hoping for a general estimate. Assume a fulltime yearly salary.
Here's the experience I would bring:
Associate in Applied Science in Computer Technology Information with a focus on Internet Security, Cyber Crime, and Computer Forensics Network+, Security+, A+, and Linux+ certifications (Possibly CCNA as well) 4 years of entry level IT experience (mixture of phone, desktop, and enterprise support)
Thanks for any feedback.
More aboutwhat market value
Don't forget that your market value will vary on your market You'll be worth a lot less in South-East Oklahoma than you would be in LA. It's always relative to cost of living and the like.
In silicon valley/San Francisco area, I think it wouldn't be hard to find a position paying maybe in the 40-60k range. What degree you have helps when you're starting out but as you gain experience, it doesn't matter quite as much.
