Last thing, I already applied at a couple places and was offered 80k for the Business Systems Analyst position (I would actually do less than I do now). I turned it down because I first wanted to try work things out with my current employer. Keep in mind where you and I live as the cost of living will be different.

Wow you turned down 80k??????? that's nothing to sneeze at

Yeah 80 with no degree and no certs is pretty good. Once I'm done with school (for a 4 year IS degree) and with some non-A+ certs and 5+ years experience, I'll be happy to pull 70 or 75 in an as-yet-undetermined administrative or managerial IT position.

Anything over 7+ years in IT does mean much as the technology is constantly changing. I wish the OP best in his venture for better pay!

Yes, and that likely factors in to his current pay grade.

have a read.

I was in the same boat as you 6 months ago. I switch companies and couldn't be happier.
