This is a hypothetical scenario, but one that I feel I need to know.
I've recently finished my BSc in Computer Science, and gotten an entry-level software developer position at a respectable, international firm.
Let's say that in two years, my salary has gone up since I started, but I feel the need to quit. I'm not yet suited for any higher-level positions such as senior developer or project leader. However, I would not be keen on recieving a lower salary than what I had worked to achieve.
How should I take this up with a prospective new employer? How would he react to me not being experienced enough for a higher-level position, but still wanting equal or higher salary than what I had in the previous firm?
Would it be fair of me to expect another entry-level position, but with a higher salary than other applicants, given my superior experience?
