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)
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.
