Otherwise, moving on to another job has its same effects - another company might be looking for a degree holder because he/she already learned the fundamentals/theories, or because the position requires so and they can afford it in order to fill a vacancy. what i'm trying to say it, the new job might have higher workload, new learning curves or new workflow in return for a small income increment.

And i don't think u're underpaid at all.

I get what you mean. thanks for sharing your view...
