Are salaries really that low for someone with 3 years experience and relevant qualifications? I was on 24-30k a year as a course advisor.

I was obviously over paid.

Believe it or not this was for my job!!

Some of my previous posts I may have mentioned being a bit unhappy with my salary and level of work etc so I bit the bullet and decided to move on.

The salary above is starting at 4k lower than what I was on.

Unfortunately, if a company doesn't want to pay the money, no matter how qualified or experienced someone is, they wont.
