2007 Houston IT Candidate Salary Survey






The Houston IT Salary Survey is an annual survey conducted by the president of JDA Professional Services, Inc., James Del Monte. The salaries in this survey are based on current average earnings at the time of publishing. This survey is an effective tool for guiding IT salaries year round. However, when using it to evaluate your own salary, you must take into consideration total compensation which has several variables. Some considerations that impact base salaries are bonuses, location, cost of insurance and other non cash incentives.





For a man who uses well what he is given shall be given more, and shall have abundance.  Matthew 25:29



"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do.  Attitude determines how well you do it."   -- Lou Holtz

“Formal education will earn you a living; self-education will earn you a fortune” – Jim Rhon
