    Default 2013 IT salaries: 15 titles getting the biggest pay raises

    2013 IT salaries: 15 titles getting the biggest pay raises

    Some familiar titles like network engineer/administrator getting bumped up year by year

    But wow at some of these figures (like mobile app dev and data modeler)...I dont even know what a data modeler is or what they do on a daily but never seen a salary range for that sort of thing before. Mobile app developer is a huge deal right now. Check it out

    These articles are always depressing. I'm not sure if I even want to open it.

    Exact opposite for me. I'm surprised especially since I just got out of college a few months ago. I guess it really depends on location and where you went to college.

    You just graduated college a few months ago and have both a CASP and a CCNA? I thought the CASP was supposed to be a higher level cert? CompTIA lists it as 10+ years IT experience.

    If you are making below the average you should still feel in paradise. I'm from a non-english speaking country and with a ccent/ccna/dlink certs/Ipv6 forum certified network engineer silver and experience in core with CRS and ALU 7750 i'm barely making 1000 dolars/month

    Any IT professional who aspires to get any CompTIA cert after 10 years of on-the-job experience deserves a swift kick in the nuts.

    Lol I don't actually expect people taking the CASP to have 10 years of experience. I guess I'm just more surprised that he, as a recent graduate, got it and didn't bother using the Security+ as a stepping stone. More like that fact put the CASP test into perspective for me..

    Agreed, I wish I hadn't looked at it. Not only am I in the wrong area of IT, I'm also living in the wrong country, it seems!

    When I hear "Portal", I think IBM WebSphere.

    Also, I'm always disappointed to find I'm making below average. That's what I get for living in the rust belt.

    Your cost of living will reflect that, generally speaking. Very few areas find IT at a relative disadvantage; you're still probably doing pretty well for your area. Averages are going to be adversely affected by people living in densely populated, high-CoL and high-demand areas -- NYC, SoCal, Chicago, etc. If you're anywhere near these "averages" and living in a smaller metro like Indianapolis, you're probably doing something right.

    That comes from being in the military... But you'll make more once you get out and get back to civilian life.
