    I dont make the rules mate thats basic forum ethics and stardardised round the net, in IT terms its very similar to a protocol..

    ha ha I hope that's a good thing bro. Same as Simondo I get enough to buy stuff I don't need. If you really want an idea go onto it jobs watch and type in some job roles, or do an anonymous poll on salary ranges. I'm sure you'll be a high flyer in no time mate. If you wanted to earn fairly silly money work your way up to third line or above and get a contract role. Top dollar baby

    This! This is what I am aiming for. CCNP then maybe a bit of contracting (With Experience of course). Take a year out in NZ on a contract, see how it goes and then decide to stay in NZ full time or come home.

    OR

    Get selected for the Cisco Scholarship and make a move into Security.

    wow, I actually want to do the same thing in future. Take 6 months in NZ contracting hopefully. I heard that degrees are pretty much a requirement over there though, and I don't have one.

    I have been having a look and seeing what is out there. Some do require a degree, others just ask for experience. Hopefully, I can get enough experience in the next 5 years and that will be OK. I am marrying a NZ girl in 3 months so that's the Visas sorted :)

    Have you been before @Pseudonym?

    I've never been no, I've wanted to go for years. I dated a girl from there a while back. I was thinking of going to Auckland. Would you recommend? Only thing that worries me long term is earthquakes. I think I'll eventually move out there if I like it though. Europe is becoming increasingly unstable politically, financially etc

    Auckland is gorgeous. Its a really beautiful place and highly recommended at least visiting.

    My only worries are:
    • Property in Auckland is WAY over priced,
    • Jane has been here 13 odd years. She has her older sister here, but her younger sister and parents in NZ. Obviously I have all my family, (two brothers, Mum & Dad, Uncles and Aunts etc) and we are all close. Its going to be hard for me to leave all that behind. We are going for a year and see how we get on.
    • Earthquakes are a slight concern, though they are not as frequent in Auckland as say Wellington.
    On the flip side:
    • Gorgeous views,
    • Very little serious crime (when compared to UK)
    • More Land than people,
    • Friendly people,
    • Lovely weather,
    • Cant be any worse getting to work that it is on the train at the moment :)
    It is something we need to have a serious chat about, but I would love to give it a go. If we don't like it, come home!

    I'd happily tell anybody in a PM what i earn if it's relevant to getting a realistic idea on progressing their career and what to expect.

    I never thought i'd be at a point in life where i earn as much as i do now. Like others have said, its enough for me to buy things i don't need, and some things that i say i need, but probably don't (recently purchased a new skydiving rig:evilhands:)

    IT Careers are definitely lucrative if you fall in to the right role

    My company turnover varies between 30K-100K GBP depending on a good or bad year.

    22K for first helpdesk role doesn't sound that bad.

    My first role was 12K.

    I agree that sounds like a decent amount mate you should be proud but also keep the pressure on yourself to learn more and get good appraisals and such. Plan your application for second line. If it makes you feel better my first IT job paid £13,333. I always remember it because I felt it was a really random salary to give ha ha. This was back in 1999. How old were you then? Another thing to remember is that while some of us may be relatively well paid, a lot of us will also be pushing up daisys sooner than you will be ha ha patience and determination will get you where you want to be

    Instead of maybe making people a bit uncomfortable by asking how much they earn, why not add a poll to the post with some options say 10K to 15K, 15K to 20K and so on. It is private so no-one sees the results except for the amount of voters.

    Just a suggestion, no pressure

    If you want me to do it or you want help just shout out.
