Hi everyone,
So I recently graduated from college a while ago and have been looking for a job since. I've been interviewing at places and I think I've been low-balling myself when asked the "expected pay" question. I don't have much real-world experience when interviewing for a professional position. This is the beginning of my professional life (I hope).

I was wondering what the average salary for an entry-level programmer is? I'm currently living in Winnpeg, Manitoba, Canada. I've done a few searches and have found mostly US cities. I have yet to find a site for Canadian cities. Can anyone please suggest what an expected salary should be? or perhaps a site that shows Canadian cities? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

According to CareerCruising.com, most computer programmers in Canada earn between $40,000 to $75,000 per year, with average income being about $55,000. That obviously depends on education and experience, so I expect an entry level programmer with college experience would earn somewhere around the $45,000 mark.
