I feel that with all the credentials I possess I am being underpaid?
Diode 38 weeks ago
I have about 3 years experience in network security and I am making $25 an hour (Los Angeles, Ca). My official job title is "network security administrator".
I possess the following credentials:
- comptia project+ certification
- comptia security+ certification
- comptia network+ certification
- associates degree in business management
- associates degree in marketing
- bachelors in design and applied arts
I'm thinking it's time to look for new employment as my current employer does not want raise my pay.
What do you guys think? What should I be making with these credentials alone?
I'm also working on OSCP certification at the moment.
One of the problems i've been running into it is employers low-balling pay. The job market is tough and they know this.
Thanks for your help.
