Submission + - Ask Slashdot: What to ask salary-wise after 9 year 2

superslacker87 writes: I've been working as a network administrator for 9 years in the military, and have been on a fixed salary (2011 income $26k) for some time. From what I understand, that is considerably lower than even the entry-level salaries in the IT field. I will be exiting the military in a few months, and I am always regretting the dreaded "salary" question during interviews because honestly, I don't know. I'm always afraid of scaring potential employers away because I either ask for much less than I'm worth or worse, put myself way outside of the ballpark on the other end.

I have no certifications, but am working on Network+ and Security+, and will have my bachelor's degree in MIS within a year, as well as a secret security clearance. I'd say that my experience levels even without the certifications and degree that prove it would put me probably at mid-level administrator, but I really don't know what to say.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
