Confused about skill level

By ledrewr ·
I would like any reponse that would help determine what level I should be applying for in the IT Industry.

My first real job in IT was with the 1999 Canada Winter Games. I was contracted for the position of IT Coordinator. I had recently graduated a local college in which I graduated a Business & Computer Studies program (Computer Programmer).

I had a great team of programmers and network people working with me for this 2 year contract. The Canada Games was a great success. We produced the first computerized results systems in the history of the games.

I still felt that I needed more training, so back to school for another 2 year program in IT. Graduated with honors.

My problem is that I'm unsure of what level I should be applying for jobs (entry level or intermediate level)

Several ways to detirmine skill level

by Terry_V In reply to Confused about skill leve ...

1.Go to last college and ask carreer councellors etc. your question. 2. Inquire about skill level testing/certification. 3. Look at job listings with requirements for certfcations that match yours. 4 Talk to people in positions that would interest you and ask thier qualifications/experience. 5 Apply for jobs at ALL levels including those you believe are above you and see which you get interviews/responses to. You may be way overqualified for the jobs you have been looking at and getting no response because employers think you would cost too much.
