Dear What Am I Worth,
I am a senior computer technician/webmaster for a Christchurch-based retail and mail-order computer firm. I have degrees in computer science and arts (management science). My current pay is in the mid-thirty thousand level. Should I leave New Zealand?
IT Futures replies: The decision on whether to leave New Zealand I believe should be made for reasons other than money, as it’s all relative to what you have to spend. On the remuneration issue, it’s a little difficult to tell exactly how long you have been in the role and what your technical skills are, but I would expect that $36,000 - $40,000 is a fair reward for your efforts.
