What am I worth?

By ltraub ·
Could someone please tell me what I'm worth? I currently live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I have just received my Oracle 8 certification and am going to take the Oracle 8i upgrade test. I am familiar with UNIX, Linux, HTML and Office 97/2000. I also have my A+ and Windows certifications. If you could point me to a web site that does this I wuold appreciate it.

Thanks.

What am I worth?

by Elaine D. In reply to What am I worth?

I'd take a look at job postings that are out there. I personally find that compuerjobs.com is a great site.

It currently has 1133 Oracle jobs in Texas. Quickly skimming the ones that have salaries posted shows a $60-125k range. The site says the average pay is $63k salary, $40 an hour for contract work.

A little research there (or other job search sites) can help you figure out what companies are paying for your skills set.

Sometimes the question to ask is not, "What am I worth?", but, "What will someone pay someone with my skills set and experience?"

If you can stand it, you might consider talking to a reputable recruiter to find a good range for you.

Good luck!
Elaine

There are several online salary surveys which can assist you in determining your worth. You must also factor in cost of living differentials as well. Check out:

www.salary.com
(very extensive)

www.homefair.com
(salary calculator)


Sector-specific IT trade associations possess salary info and resources.
