Congratulations on the success of your new business! It’s been expanding rapidly so that you’ve hired employees and bought them all state-of-the-art desktops. Although you like dealing with technology, you just don’t have the time anymore to install, maintain, and update the company computers. So maybe it’s time to hire a dedicated IT guy.
Except, do you know how much one really costs? These figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics can clue you in.
- If you want somebody to handle general maintenance, a support specialist makes $47,130 per year in Pennsylvania. But you might be able to get away with paying under $27,970 for a low. If you want the very best, expect to pay $72,840 or more.
- Prefer someone with higher-level expertise who can set up and manage your network and overall systems? Administrators earn $76,280 annually, with a low of $45,870 and a high of $113,950.
- For a manager who can take charge of other computer employees, expect to pay a mean $133,480 with a range of $78,720 to $187,199.
These are just salary figures. They don’t include what you’ll contribute in taxes, Social Security, and benefits.
