Back in 98 - 99, I was getting at least 3 calls per week from companies looking to hire me away from my job. Now, you have to know someone to get a job making half of what you used to make.

Buying dogs kills.

What's funny is the I.T. jobs that REQUIRE degree's and cert's pay SHIT half the time. These company's are only trying to set a standard is all. What sucks is there will be somebody that will take the job and the company will be able to get away with it.

And that's why I never got into the industry, I saw it was flooded almost immediately. I have an MCSE, CCNA, and A+ and I've never used them once. But, I'm in this thread because I've always been interested if the pay was right.
