Greetings all,

I am currently employed as a Java web developer in the south eastern U.S. and am severely underpaid. Currently I make around 42k USSDS per year. I have a CS degree from a good school and have nearly 2 years of experience in web development, with PHP and Java. I'm starting to think that I should start looking for something else, but most of the job postings seem to want you to have at least 5yrs of experience. Also, in my current job, we use Java but have a proprietary system for delivering content so we dont' really us JSP's, or struts. I know how to use these technologies but I don't have the work experience to back it up. Does anybody have any advice for me?
