Dear What Am I Worth,
I’m a senior network engineer at a university which has around 10,000 students, 2000 staff, 3000 desktops and servers, and more than 320 hubs, switches and routers.
I have worked here for four years and previously had worked for a system integration company for three years as a system and network engineer.
My roles include smooth operation of corporate LAN/WAN/Internet, design and upgrade of data network, troubleshooting of network faults, mentoring of other network engineers, deployment of new technology and documentation of proper procedure for other engineers to follow.
I have a Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering and a Master's degree in computer science.
I hold CNE3.12 [Certified Novell Engineer], CompTIA Network+ and CCNA, CCDA [Cisco Certified Design Associate], CCNP [Cisco Certified Network Professional] qualifications and am currently working on CCDP [Cisco Certified Design Professional] and CCIE [Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert].
I have extensive knowledge of data networking technology and Unix systems. Also, I am familiar with a wide range of networking environments, including Unix, Netware, Win NT and Apple Mac.

Robert Walters IntelliMark replies: You seem to have excellent experience and solid networking skills that are very much in demand. Your Cisco qualifications will also add to your market value. For a senior engineering role in Auckland, you could expect to earn $70,000 to $80,000 and possibly more if you move into more of a network design role.
