I'm a recent college graduate from an IT program at a good state school in the United States. I have my B.S. in Information Technology with an emphasis in web development. The program was fairly coding-intensive.
When I graduated from said University, I applied for a position as a WordPress developer and system administrator for a small marketing/web development company. They offered me 20$/hr for 20 hours a week during the first 3 months and then 22$/hr for full time after that. That corresponds to roughly 41k a year for the 20 hrs a week and roughly 46k a year for the period after that.
The work is GREAT. I have very much enjoyed every single day I've worked since starting (front end web design and development was my ideal job since college), my co-workers are awesome, and I get to learn WP, sys admin, and coding skills one-on-one from a developer with 10+ years of experience.
I'm a little hesitant because I feel like with an IT degree, I could have accepted a position elsewhere for a higher base rate. What do you think? Is the pay outlined pretty good for entry level web development for an employee straight out of college?
Thanks for the help.
