Here's your problem, kid...
I put out a job post and got almost 50 applications.
Easy for me to find 5 qualified and then offer low salaries.
You have to specialize. Otherwise you are one of thousands.

Start your own business, repair and build computers for old people so they can chat with their kids. Niche market that's the key and being your own boss, you just have to learn to be a people person. Selling yourself is the key to success in anything, just be attractive friendly and personable and you will be successful in anything.

It will get worse for you when you find open age discrimination starting in your 30s for IT work. Google it if you don't believe me.

Re: I'm A Computer Technician And I Make As Much As A Security Guard
start making Apps man! A passive income is what you want more than anything in this world. Making money while you sleep is way better than a job.

I have a buddy who started making apps like trackers that are installed on the phones of kids so that the parents could follow everything the kids do, from gps tracking, to reading the texts. All in hidden files so the kids don't even know they are there. Good money to be made from paranoid parents about what there kids are doing when not in sight.

Specialize in something that interests you in your field and the money will flow.

This world is getting farther away from "JOBS" type mentality every day!

Just to add to my last post.

I would pay big bucks for an app or a program that can do comparative biometric analysis between photos or videos.

Meaning...you take two pictures of people and the program tells you how much of a match they are. Say between ear biometrics, eyes, movements, full face shots ect.

Just a tip for you.

Around here aa basic IT tech makes about 15-18 an hour. Security guard makes around 9-13 an hour. Not sure how that equates to them making more unless they are armed.

Re: I'm A Computer Technician And I Make As Much As A Security Guard
that's because the skill is now quite common. a decade ago the industry needed network techs badly, so half the planet ran out and at least attempted to get certified. a surplus of at least passably skilled workers drives down the pay for the position.

This. It is an over saturated skill set. Just as it was before you chose that field OP, there should be no surprises here.

You need to become an IT contractor.... doh!

Thats where the money is...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28238942


^^^^ THIS

I worked for nearly 10 years as a Lotus Notes Developer, and NEVER did I make less than $50 - $60 AN HOUR.

Programming, web development, contracting. Thats where it is. However, you DO have to (typically) live in a metropolitan area like Silicon Valley.

I now work as a database content provider @ 30K per year, but do professional side jobs for $60 an hour. The money is still there if you know where to look. Sure everyone has a computer. But: the more people that have computer things, the more they will need people like us to program, network, or develop apps for them.

Security guards should make more. They work harder for a living.

Yup. After all they are also guarding the equipment you need to work with to make a living.



Nobody needs you when we can google how to do it and then do it ourselves.
