    Thats interesting, I wonder why these TPs can't be forced to tell the truth about salaries instead of talking bollocks and providing people with false expectations. :dry

    That one seems to be pretty crappy. There's nothin in there, for instance, that equates to my job title (Senior Systems Engineer). The closest is probably 'IT Analyst' but the figures quoted for that seem quite low compared to my salary. I think the IT Jobs Watch one is more accurate.
