Is $22.10/hr for Technical Support Specialist decent? Been with the company going on two years and have supported that particular department quite a few times. Currently sitting as an IT Tech and support general help desk and between tier 1 and 2 tickets. This will also be my highest paying job yet lol. Thanks in advance for any guidance!

If it’s more than what you’re making, take it. Make sure you’re upskilling in your free time and automating the menial tasks you already do. Find your next higher paying job asap.

Oh yeah, I’d be stupid to not take it for sure. Planning on getting my CCNA and looking into learning more cloud and automation stuff. Not sure how much free time I’ll get on that side compared to how I am now, but definitely plan on learning more and striving for better pay. (Trying to hold out to my 5 year mark so I can stay vested in our retirement fund.)

Honestly I’d go for $25. As someone who worked for the USGOV I made $43600 a year while everyone else on my team made 10k more. So always push for more.

I’ll definitely see if I can push for that. I checked my state and the pay falls between junior and mid level, which I’d say is pretty fair and I’d also classify myself as somewhere in between there.

I don’t think that’s terrible. Do you have A+ or anything under your belt?

like

I don’t, but I’ve spoken to my boss about it quite a few times and he said don’t really worry about the A+ and go for Security+ or even Cloud+ and CCNA (and of course anything else I’m interested in since I’ve expressed interest in other areas).

like

The Cloud+ or any cybersecurity cert will make you more marketable for future roles.

Thank you! I’d definitely love to dive a bit more into cybersecurity, or at the very least learn more about it (I’ve worked as a private investigator before, so it’d be awesome to find a field where I got to use my IT experience and that and I know our state IT has something like that).

Hello,

Looking for advice. I'm currently making 80k CAD Salary in my position. When I was hired I was originally told that I was going to be there to bring best practices and enterprise level processes to the company as they were severely lacking any structure for their product development. It's a fairly small team and since then I've pretty much been doing the job of Project Manager, Product Manager, Managing the Developers and more that was not in the JD. Should I ask for more money?
