Dear What Am I Worth

I am a 36-year-old analyst/programmer in Wellington, working in the IT section of a major bank. My duties include client liaison, design and development of user-interface,database and COM components.

I have 14 years' PC/LAN based development experience using a variety of PC-based languages. In the past six years, my skills have been primarily client-server/n-tier/intranet/web development, mainly on Microsoft platforms (Windows 3.x, 95, 98, NT 3.5, NT 4). I am not a graduate (still going through, via extramural).

All my training so far has been through industry courses, on-the-job and self-training.

My current development skills and experience, especially in the past three years, is in Visual Basic, SQL Server (6.5 and 7.0), Microsoft Access, Microsoft IIS, ASP, HTML, VBScript (smattering of JavaScript), XML, XSL and Microsoft Transaction Server.

IT @ Manpower replies: Analyst/programmers have to become senior analyst/programmers (and take responsibility for juniors and projects) to get through a barrier at around $65,000. However, your technical skills are much in demand and therefore you should be earning a premium above this figure, perhaps to $70,000.
