Why the disparity?
On computerjobs.com I found a position that wants a developer experienced with XML for 50K starting. They were in the same geographic area.
Why the disparity? Does calling yourself a librarian really make you worth 8-12 thousand dollars less? Does that Masters degree we have really make us less employable. Why does the developer not need teaching experience and a 2nd (or for that matter 1st) Masters?
I may start leaving the L out of my rÃ©sumÃ©. I may put my degree as a Masters of Information Studies (rather than MS LIS) I may call myself an information accessability specialist, or electronic and print information generalist or some other nonsensical title.
Is the term librarian really a liability?
N.B. I didn't apply for either, I don't like to code. I've done it and I don't care for it.
