I am not paid to analyze technology because I do not do the same thing day in and day out. For example, I did not get paid for last week’s episode of The Wire because I didn’t do any analysis on the topic. That’s a different story.
I’ve been writing for a long time and have had to learn “the hard way” a lot of the time. I was an IT analyst for two years, a marketing analyst for a year, and then a writer for a year and a half. I am not paid to analyze technology because I do not do the same thing day in and day out. My work is on the internet, including articles, blogs, and other public forums.
I think the reason why I don’t get paid for this blog is because I don’t write for a living. When I write for a living, I’m paid because my own blog gets traffic and traffic pays for the bandwidth it takes to send you my posts. When you write for a living, you can write to your own blog, and that’s how the money works. When you write for a non-actual living, you don’t have the same ability to earn money.
Well that has nothing to do with writing for a living. It is why I don’t get paid for my job as an information technology analyst. That is because for a while I was paid to write for a living, and I was paid for that blogging gig, but I was not paid for this blog. So the fact that you say I should be paid for this blog is not the same thing as saying I should be paid for my job as an information technology analyst.
Technicians and analysts are two different jobs, not exactly the same. Although it is possible to be an analyst who works for a non-actual living, it is nearly impossible to be a technician. Technicians usually work for companies, who are actual working people and they are compensated for that status. That is because technicians are paid based on how well they do the job they are being paid to do.
Technicians are actually paid not based on how well they do the job they are being paid to do, but how many connections they have. For example, a tech who is a network engineer can make more money than a technician who is an IP network engineer. The difference is largely based on whether they have the connections necessary to get the job done.
We could start to see tech companies starting to pay for connections. It would be a good way to get people into tech jobs without having to sell yourself as a product in the way that a salesperson does. This could help with the growing pressure to be “connected” and “connected” means being able to sell yourself. It doesn’t have to be a sales job. Someone who is a network engineer could make more money than a salesperson who is a network salesperson.
There are also ways that we could leverage technology to gain more money. We could take advantage of the fact that most jobs now are done electronically, so we could use that to leverage our skills. If we had the ability to go to a web site and look up salaries for people with specific job titles, we might find that people in the computer industry are making more than people in other jobs.
Some people might be able to use this information to create their own job descriptions and set up a website that shows the salaries for people in those job titles. This is what the folks at salaryproject.com do, and it is pretty impressive.
The site is designed to be searchable by job titles. The only requirement is the person looking for the job title have Internet access. We found the site to be quite useful, but the salary details are pretty out there, and you’ll find what you’re looking for.
