    Entry level pay?

    I have a lead on a job in Louisville. It is a full time permanent,
    entry-level, VB job. I'll probably be interviewed soon. I don't have a
    clue what a job like this pays, and I don't want to be clueless for the
    interview <g>

    What can I expect? What range of pay should I be willing to accept. What
    should I ask for?

    As a little background.... The company knows of my ability from references
    of others that have used my code and/or products. I don't have a college
    degree, but that isn't a problem for them. I'll also be relocating if I get
    the job.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    45-65K is reasonable for an entry-level position w/ bennies in most markets
    the size of Louisville. Good luck!

    Do a little research and look over some salary surveys, and other career
    info, because you may find a limited set of responses from a newsgroup.

    Devx may have a salary survey posted online, if so, they should mention
    it. Here is another site for career info:

    Good Luck!

    Check with other companies in the area. My employers are in their current
    location due to local economy which flows slower than molasses. This lets
    them pay less than the region average, since the local wages are so much
    lower than the rest of the state/region/nation.
