Do entry level IT people usually have a degree? Maybe they can’t pay you that salary because you haven’t graduated. And I totally feel for you about being held back from a great opportunity because you are doing so well in your current unit. That’s happened to me at every job I’ve worked at. I reach a point where I’m the best on my team, but not paid that way and something better at the company opens up: I apply for it and never hear back. Then I find out later it was ‘decided’ behind the scenes that I was too valuable to my current team. It’s total BS.

This is so common treatment from employers but at the same time SOOOOOO frustrating!

I’m sure you know that we are all going to recommend you stay where you are until you have your degree and a new job. Now is not the time to be looking for a new job without the right credentials.

But don’t think that the IT work that you are doing doesn’t count for something. Yes, you can’t put an IT position on your resume, but you can say you supported or backed up the IT on certain projects, then list them. It will help in the future.
