According to InformationWeek, a new job might pay less than you are getting now. If you're an MCSE your yearly pay is dropping. A new survey by the Wilson research group shows average base pay for an MCSE dropped 7% over last year. The numbers went from $67,800 to $63,400. But the silver lining is that if you have your W2K Cert, your average yearly pay is up $4,400 over an NT Server 4.0 cert.
