I recently wrote a post on the rise in the cost of computer hardware and software.
The article discussed the rising cost of a typical desktop computer (desktop), the cost to build one, and the price of buying new hardware.
A key aspect of the article was to compare how much the average salary is for each of the different jobs, which are all described as “computer jobs.”
In that post, I made a distinction between “computer” jobs, and “computer related” jobs.
Computer related jobs are those that involve the use of computers, while computer-related jobs are jobs that involve software.
For the purposes of this post, “computer-related” means the use or the expected use of computer-generated content and services.
Here is the chart that I used to illustrate the differences in the median salary for each computer- related job, which is the sum of the median income for computer related jobs for each state:As you can see, the median pay for computer-based jobs is very similar across the country.
However, the salaries for computer workers in the top quartile of salary ranges are significantly higher than the median.
If you want to learn more about the differences between computer- and computer- based jobs, check out this post:What does that mean?
If you want a salary for a computer-specific job, you should expect to pay an average of $27,000 per year, and your median salary is $29,000.
As you may have noticed, the average median salary varies considerably by state.
You will also notice that the median annual income for a “computer job” in California is $1,821.
In Nevada, the salary for the “computer program developer” is $2,061.
The median salary in Idaho is $3,063.
What can you do with your newfound income?
You can save money.
There are many ways to use your newfound money, and this is just one of them.
You can use your income to buy an additional computer, or you can use it to invest in your business.
This will save you money over time, and will also give you a better chance of keeping up with your bills.
You can also use your money to buy a new car, home, or other investments.
When it comes to investing, the only way to get better returns than the stock market is to use a diversified portfolio.
Here is how you can set up your portfolio and invest in different stocks and bonds, as well as real estate:The chart below shows the income for the top quintile of income, the top 5% of income for those with median salaries above $100,000, and median annual incomes above $70,000:The income for lower quintiles of income are also shown, and is shown in the chart below:I would recommend checking out my other articles about salary and job growth, and learning more about how the financial industry is growing, if you are in a career that involves computer programming or computing.
