    With photography being one of my biggest hobbies, and the fact that I'm rather burned out as a Network Administrator, this sure sounds interesting as a career change. Sounds really cool. I'm pretty sure the pay cut would kill me, unfortunately.

      Yea I would imagine from a network admin to this position would be quite a paycut.. but to tell the truth Im not sure what the pay on this position would be.

        Have a friend who might be interested. I know you say you're not sure, but do you think $42k would be unreasonable to ask for depending on qualifications?

          I wouldn't say that is unreasonable, if I were to guess (don't hold me to it) I would guess it would be in the 40k-50k range.. I could be really off base here.. but from other positions I've seen hired in it seems on point.

          Best way to find out would be to apply and see what they offer first hand.

                I imagine they are trying to get someone in asap, but they just sent this out to the whole building today.
