Switching Careers

I want to make the switch into a more technical/analyst role but companies arent offering me an amount that makes me want to leave my current setup. am i being reasonable?

i dont hate my current job and im also sort of unwilling to leave if opportunity isnt right.

edit: i have about 2+ in data management, analytics, automation and process improvement. my current role doesnt give me this at all as my last role did. i left my last role as it was only a college job and i thought my current FT was the same but it isnt.

    YoE? Location?
    Unless you are in the middle of cornfields and have 1 YoE or less you are grossly underpaid

      Ok, not so bad, considering you are an auditor. Why do you think you are qualified for a technical role ?

      I made an edit to my post

      But I think I’m qualified for a more technical role or maybe data/business intelligence role because I have migrated my prior company hr processes from excel sheets to a database that manages their entire employee info from the time their onboarded to when their let go

      I created new process flows and help them identify where items weren’t being address with data analytics

      I consulted with other hr managers and helped them manager their data better and improved their hr processes

      Ok, makes sense. I would apply for entry level jobs if you are going the technical route. Or beef up your pmp/agile skills and go the TPM route. Either way, based on your YoE, entry level is fair.

    When you change career you start from the bottom. Why would companies offer more for no experience?
