The median pay for jobs on the site is $58,000, compared with the U.S. Census Bureau median of $51,017.

College degree and seven years of experience, and I'm 10k under the national median. Who knew that working for a newspaper in Indiana wouldn't get me where I should be?

In 1996 if you could spell SAP or Y2K you could be a tech contractor for $150/hour.

5 years of college gaining two BA's, 3 years of law school, and 5 years of experience later and I'm a hair over $6k above the median.

My wife has 4 college, 2 for an MA, 3 for a JD, and 6 of experience and is unemployed.

So there's that.

Oh, don't I know it. I'm the online guy (site administration, some design/development), so the career path isn't a total loss, but the industry I landed in is. I wouldn't mind a different path altogether, but I'm not going back to college now and switching careers is difficult.

For a second there, I assumed you were a reporter. In which case, I'd say "Start doing stories on businesses you'd like to work for, under the guise of 'They're movers and shakers in our community' and do a lot of sucking up while you're interviewing the boss." But since you're an online guy, ask around among the reporters (surreptitiously). They tend to know what's going on and have huge rolodexes.

College degree and seven years experience, and I'm almost 15k under the national median. Who knew working for a law firm in Southern California wouldn't get me where I should be?
