    Hey guys,

    I dont want to start a debate or anything lol.

    Just a little Q.

    I know it depends on experience/location etc, but what is the average salary of a Systems Administrator trained to MCSA2003 level?

    I would like to hear feedback for as many locations as possible worldwide.

    Many thanks :thumbleft

    Don't know about typical salaries here but generally they are much lower than the UK. However, the lifestyle makes up for that :D

    theres a prog on here for Brits emigrating Bluerinse, wish I was one of the skills needed.. would sell up like a shot lol

    as for salaries, best bet is to look on t'internet job sites and work out a rough average

    why do you need to know btw? the way I see it a job is a job to an extent, money should be a factor but not 'the' factor

    hello all,

    up here in Glasgow the average seems to be £25k approx. Again, depending on who you are working for and whether the company are clued up on what the averages are!
