Today I looked at the Atlanta job boards for the first time in a good while. It appears even Microsoft is having a hard time finding people in this mini tech-boom, I say this because they have resorted to public job postings.
Salary is $80->130K + stock/bonuses, which I expect are the ranges for a high GPA, few years out of college grad, to the 15+ years of IT experience guy. The candidate must be willing to travel which is why the ceiling about $15K higher than most others in town.
It does not interest me because of the travel, but I'll be a good few Atlanta based readers are interested. If you apply try to ask a local Microsoft DE/ consultant what the interview may entail - they have a few recurring themes/ questions from what I hear. You might want to ask them how demanding their job is too ;)
