It's not uncommon for fresh grads to get 60k+ and 80k+ within a few years. So you should be aiming for 100k+ minimum I would say.

Have you still been working in development? If you haven't for a 2-3 years, I think that might have a pretty significant impact on potential employers.

As far as the rates, I think 80-100k is probably fair for most companies but I find rates vary a lot and I think a top candidate can probably get $120k-150k at some places.

While those kinds of salaries are possible, keep in mind that they are probably limited to essentially programming gods. The genius type of kid who you give an assignment to and he just cranks out the code in a day.

If you are that good you are probably at Google / Apple / Microsoft / Amazon etc though.

Makes sense. Also compare other aspects of the job like benefits, vacation entitlement, etc. These things also add value to the overall compensation.
