I thank you...Pay is not a big factor & like many I am seeking AGE is 49! Dedication is strong! I am in PA., NORTHEAST !~
Pay is always a factor, and when you are out of a job, it is almost always the only factor. I was laid off in 9/01 and been doing odds and ends till now. Just got a full time job. So pay believe me is important and is a big factor.
A second reason pay is important is because you will start hating and resenting the organization you work for if you feel you are underpaid either internally, externally or both.
But, a helpdesk position could range from $15+/hour to a decent 40K salary to start off. You will of course need to be reasonably familiar with the product/service/application you are supporting, but let's face it - you can write coherently in English - that is already a plus! :cheesy:
