How much do you earn?

I came across an interesting report today that’s an IT Salary Survey for 2008. It’s a survey conducted by Global Knowledge, a global leader in IT and business training together with TechRepublic, an online magazine and social network for IT professionals. The report comes up with some great facts and figures that are based around the U.S. IT industry particularly around salaries and skills.

Did you know for example that nearly half of those responding earn a salary between $45,000 and $85,000 per year in nearly equal groups. Here’s a chart of how salaries are split into bands showing the ranges of all the respondents to the survey placed themselves in:


My favourite sections are the ones that are relevant to a global market, particularly the parts outlining Top Tech skills that employers are looking for, and Top Certifications that actually mean something. But don’t just take my word for it, read it for yourself


  1. I made the right move with the CISSP then – its just unfortunate its not as recognised here as in the US.

  2. Very Nice data, well I dont want to be in the 1% people but wish if can make upto the 5% , will be more then happy with that income 😉 ,

    thanks mate for the post
