If one started earning x at some point, no benefits, at job 1, and afterwords I acquired a MsCS plus 2 years experience, how much of a salary increase should one reasonably expect for job 2 (a new job, with benefits)? Suppose the job requirements could be different a little, and that one was fully qualified for both? 10%? 40%? More?

It depends on the market. It may be 0% or -10% in US right now.

This is the wrong way to think about salary. Your salary at job 1 should have no bearing on job 2. Consider the requirements of job 2, your education and experience, and the market conditions. Previous agreements with other employers are moot, and will generally only inhibit you.

Carlisia Campos:
- In the USA, with an MS-Comp Sci degree...
- You should be commanding around US$50K-US$60K/year.
- Yes, salaries for new graduates are down. Hopefully, this will change.
- As Mark mentioned, previous employment wages should have nothing to do
with the salary at your new employment.
- Your offer should include benefits.
