Just out of curiosity, I was wondering what you guys do for a living. 1) Where do you work? 2) What do you do? 3) How's the compensation? 4) What degrees/certifications do you have (if any)? I graduated in May 2007 with a 4 year CIS degree. I work in the district office of a large local school district in SC. I am mainly a web programmer, but have been asked to start managing other systems throughout the district...mainly Novell and systems dealing with student data. Pay (55k) is surprisingly good for a school district, and considering I am a recent grad, it's even better.
