    How much does MCSA and MCSE worth in job market? Or a Certified Public
    Accountant worth more?
    I have a degree in Accounting and Finance. I have passed A+, Net+ and
    i-Net+ and I am going for MCSA now. I think I should able to get it by Jan
    2004. Currently, my job duties include Accounting and IT and I am the only
    one in IT dept. I do all sorts of IT stuff for the company and I have been
    working for this company almost 4 yrs. My current pay is like $35K annually
    and I am discussing with my boss about promotion next year which I request
    $38K annually. Do you think the amount I request is reasonable or below the
    market price? I am located in Seattle, WA. I am also thinking whether I
    should go for MCSE or CPA next year. I would like to get some nice
    certifications in order to get myself into a position that can bargain for
    better pay. What do you guys think?

    Hi-

    Yes its a good idea to do some Microsoft certification and
    then bargain AND in a years time u can reach 45k in US.
    But with ur Finance background I would recommend to
    better stick around with Financial Software such as People
    Soft / SAP etc.. These jibs are more demanding and you
    earn a living as a consultant ad earch somwhere around 50k
    to 65 k - Rest is ur choice.

    According to MCP Magazine's 2003 wage survey, an MCSE W2k in Seattle average
    is 64,000.00 Don't know about CPA, but I would think it would be higher.
