In today's modern world the technology keeps on evolving as time goes by, one of the influencers behind this was an IT Professional. Information technology surely influenced our society, computers, databases, emails, smart TV, smartphones and a lot more that made our life very convenient. Millions of people around the globe were working in an IT Company, while others in different industries like mine who were in the Medical industry, others may say that we don't need IT but it's a no no no! It's hard to survive without IT in an organization. Since the technology was so advanced now we need people who have expertise in them, but the question is? How much did one earn per month? Since I was an IT professional, how much do I earn? Let's see and find out.

I.T. One of the reason why I'm surviving right now and what I have was because of this. (Image Source: https://cdn.computercareers.org/wp-content/uploads/IT-Professional)

There's a lot of fields in IT and it does not focus only on one expertise which others know only the peak of an individual IT but it is not. Now there's a lot of factors that an employer looks at IT, your level of experience, what skills you possess, your knowledge and certificates were keys for better compensation in these fields. The regular distribution of expertise in IT normally split in two aspects, hardware & software. In this field there's other covers of support, network administration, telecommunications, computer assembly and computer systems. This is where roles and positions are defined for example: system analysts - the one that analyzes and can help solve problems as well as suggesting to have a create system in information technology, software programmers - creators of systems that are used in by the company itself or clients that need something to make your work efficient, computer support specialists - which suit me well that you can call all around,  computer scientists, network and database administrators, and more.

IT SALARIES (Position Based) - International

Now here's the part where I would discuss how much one could earn if you're an IT professional. The one that I will provide were the regular rate of IT in abroad not in PH yet:

  • IT Support Specialist - Month - $9,625  / Median - $57,750 / Yearly - $115,500

  • Hardware Analyst - Month - $13,041 / Median - $78,250 / Yearly - $156,492

  • Systems Administrator - Month - $15,000 / Median - $88,750 / Yearly - $190,000

  • Software Engineer - Month - $18,000 / Median - $95,000 / Yearly - $210,000

  • Database Administrator - Month - $20,000 / Median - $110,000 / Yearly - $250,000

You earn this kind of compensation well you can save a lot from this (Image Source: https://www.deskera.com/blog/net-salary/)

Not bad for an IT Professional right? What makes the salaries higher? As I said, one factor was the level of experience plus his/her skillset that is needed by a company, they will not give you a good compensation unless you're fitted to the position. The list I provided was just a standard or normal rate for an IT professional. I don't know how other employers provide these kinds of people but technically this is the standard, maybe there's another position that is higher than this or same position but higher compensation.

Compared to the local rate here (Philippines) I can say it had a lot of difference and the Philippines provided small compensation to be precise, you know how other companies do, not just in IT people but also to other professionals they were given minimum wages. Starting or a regular rate of an IT job here started with P20,000 pesos but to be honest when I got my first job I started at minimum with a rate before of P13,000. More or less some IT's here earn from P20,000 pesos up to P230,000 pesos. Now I cannot disclose how much I earned in a month but to give you a hint it starts with a 3 and ends with 0, overtime & incentive were included hehe.

Well this what we got and compensation when you're living in the Philippines. (Image Source: https://www.bangkokpost.com/world/1535886/philippine-central-bank-gov-says-to-take-steps-to-curb-speculators-as-peso-weakens)

In order for me to have better opportunities, either I work abroad or earn more certificates and experience and find a better employer than in the company that I am staying at the moment. I'm more than thankful for what I have right now but if the opportunities knock I'll grab it to have a better future. Now you know how much IT earn do you want to be one of us? Well it's up to you on whatever career you choose as long as you're happy with it. That's all for today if you have comments and opinions feel free to ask. Thank you for your time reading.

Yun nga po minsan hinde ka pa napupunta sa talaga field mo. Hinde po nagtry yung kapatid nyo pumasok IT company? Kasi mas mataaas talaga magiging rate pag IT company po. Normal talaga mababa magpasahod dito po kaya di masisi yung ibang pinoy na piliin mag abroad para kahit papano mas maging maganda buhay hirap dito sa pinas hehe.

Yes I can say that IT was really indemand now and how fast the technology and gadgets evolves that's the reason also why IT earn much but still it depends on the employer also. Around 30k+(Philippine Peso) amount though I can say it's not that much compare to others still I can say it helps me with my basic needs and expenses in my life.
