Sr. Network Engineer in Columbus:
"Always strive to be the most valuable employee..."
Regardless of what your compensation is, always strive to be the most valuable. This industry is very reputation influenced, if you do your best, be truthful with your skill set, and strive to be better, it will pay off. There is a limitless pool of incompetent, arrogant, and generally worthless "IT Professionals" looking for a quick buck in this industry. We have them to thank for the hesitant nature of employers to pay a wage that meets job performance of real IT Professionals that are passionate about their job, their craft, and most importantly the customers they serve. Anybody can be "good" at what they do, it takes dedication, attention to detail, and experience to truly be so. A good litmus test is taking stock of who is impressed by your skill set/job performance: Is it the customer? Or, is it you? If it is the customer, then you are likely on the right path. If it is you...it may be time to subscribe to some humility!
