1.000.000 €/month ?? (Sorry, I don't know the currency)
The less information you give the higher is the discrepancy.

The only thing that can be said is

It Depends

Salaries are based on basic economics

Supply and demand

as well as other factors


one being having ITIL certification

ITIL Foundation is just that. Foundation. It is merely the statement that you have an understanding of what ITIL is. It does not grant you more than that.

And if there are 20000 service desk types with ITIL foundation, then having it means the same as having a cup of coffee. Nothing

Just because you have a particular certifciation does not mean that employers will offer you more money. Why shoudl they ?

What experience do you have with

If you have less than 5 years in IT, then yo are competing with those who have more than 5 as well as those with 1,2,3, or 4 years in IT.

ANd if you have only 1 year of IT experience, then you will get the base rate for new employees

The theorwtical position is that you can expect a salary commensurate with your employer's evaluation of your worth to the organization.

In practice your ITIL experience may make no difference or it may enhance your value extraordinarily depending on what the employer is looking for and their faith in ITIL as a value enhancer.

So basically, you can expect not a lot, because no employer I know values ITSM much. :cry:

Excuse me for being a grumpy, arrogant old nit picker, but this whole attitude of 'give me this information right away' is starting to get up my nose. This is a user forum, not a free consulting service

Hi nobleguy.
I am Jackbency from Australia. I just want to say that one year experience is nothing in our country because one year experience mean this is just base of your work. So You should not expect more than Freshers. You said that you are ITIL V3 foundation certified but more important is that what you have skills and others factors. As Mr. DYbeach said that this is user forum not consulting service.
Thanks.

I would have thought that 1 year experience wouldn't count for much in India because the population is so much bigger.
Ditto Foundation.
1 year experience and a Foundation certificate gives you an edge overthe other noobs.
Is this a fair assumption?

Just keep at it, and one day you too can be like the Viking

Thanks to every one who replied my email.

I require a suggestion from you senior members please.

I am ITIL v3 certified and have worked in Incident, Problem and Change Management processes. I would like to acquire some technical skills as well.

My question is:
Q) Which profile is more suitable and in demand in combination to ITIL. Like... ITIL+Sql Server, ITIL+Oracle DBA, ITIL+CCNA MCSE A+ Etc.. Because I am planning to go for some technical learning, but confused :(

Also please suggest the country in which it has got more demand..? Like in UK we have demand of ITIL+CCNA, MCSE, A+ and Exchange Server.. (I surveyed)

I hope I have explained my question.. Apologise if I confused you :)

Thanks & Regards
NobleGuy

nobleguy,

aw c'mon.

1. That is question to ask of specialist job agencies who track such information or to get yourself by counting adverts.

2. Why not focus on the technical areas you feel you have an aptitude for? Or the ones valued by your present employer?

/aw c'mon.

Diarmid is correct

what do you want to do ?

If you are in the SD / incident mgmt - ITIL skill is first
If you are in the incident solving / problem mgmt solving - the tech skill is first, itil is then a benefit

then there is the market

if there are 200 roles for oracle DBAs and there is a shortage of experience oracle DBAs, then if you have Oracle DBA experience and certification then you get a leg up
but if you have no experience in oracle dba and merely get the certification, then i have to admit i would not hire you with out experience

but This is not a job service site
