Pay scales vary greatly depending on where you live. A job that pays $20/hr in NYC might pay half that in Kansas.

All you need to know:

Database/search engine-Tech Specific I used Dallas as an example, but just put in whatever area you are looking for. Gives saleries for several different types of techs.

That is a great site. My area varies quite a bit. I put in my cert and see it is a little low...okay, a lot low for my area. I think I know where the pay skew is though given the area:

CISSP in NW Arkansas.

It is worth about $20K more in Dallas.

$44,000 in NYC. Considering 3,000/ month is not uncommon in Manhattan. $44,000 will not go far.

$10-$15 average if employed by a typical corporation.
$35-$75 if your self employed.

i do comp repair on the side, but have an unrelated day job. people always ask why i dont go work for geek squad? HA!

$10 hourly is an insult when their collecting $65 an hour.
$40 per job is what i charge, typical job is 20mins. ive done 6 hours of work for the same $40 though. $40 per hour if it involves multiple skills/knowledge.

It varies, I would say mostly by corporation. You have to find a company who really vales their IT Department, and usually one with a little bigger IT Department.

Im a Technician and I dont make much. Though ive been in the business for two years, im 21 and I cant afford to live on my own. Its just too hard out there. Im working on getting my Cert's.

IBM Is hiring like mad in houston, tx, just an FYI
