T-This isn't right /g/, I fucked up not getting any related security or networking gigs till now, but still, I shouldn't be making a third of the industry standard. Maybe "entry level security work" is just an oxymoron and I'm supposed to do general networking or IT making more and then move into security.
Sorry for ventposting, figured some people might relate.

You are in the top 0.1% of the world.

Also: First job always pays bad. Get a few years of experience under your belt, and then you will have a lot more better-paying offers.

Also also: It is currently an employers market.
