What kind of job/salary do you expect/want right after graduation?

Since I'm in finance I hope to earn over $100K working at an IB firm. If that's not possible, then I might as well do accounting, earning around $40K... :( I know 100K is kind of outrageous, but if it's not for the money, I'd never even bother going into Commerce. I'd rather do history or economics.

What about you guys?

    Nobody in my family--save my rich uncles--has ever made $100k, so that is definitely not my expectations. I'd like to get a government job paying $40-50k, hopefully in intelligence or in the State Department.

    Why aren't you doing Economics if you really like it? I can see not studying History, but Economics is probably the most practical of all the social science majors.

    I'd be happy with $40K.

    I'll be happy to get a job, any job, in the television industry.

    I could definitely manage with $35-50 thousand per year to start out. Sure, I'd love to make more but I'm not going to think I'll make more than about $50-60 thousand a year ever unless I get into professional sports.

    I will probably head straight to grad school after graduation because it is a great way to get experience as a GA and something like 70% of certified athletic trainers hold a Master's Degree or higher.

    I want to get a job in Animation, and they're supposed to start out at roughly 45k and then work their way up to 100k once they gain seniority. But I don't know, it all depends.

    I suppose it depends on where you live. Some cities have such high living costs that $40,000 is more like the survival rate.

    I'm still in HS but after 8 years in college I expect to make at least $70,000 a year or else I am going to freak out because I won't know how to pay off these loans. :)

    depends where I go to college. If I go to GaTech, I'd like ~$50K starting. If not, ~$30-$35K (i'd be doing broadcasting everywhere besides GT, and that industry is tough)

    After graduation?
    30k/year, at most

    I would like to make 200k/year as a small business owner, eventually.

    60k as a physician assistant. 80k with more experience. I want to be a fantastic health care provider by 6 months after graduation.
  • 43212344321234 Posts: 926Registered User Member
    realistically, probably about 25-30k/yr
  • skybax22skybax22 Posts: 344Registered User Junior Member
    It asks how much we want to make as well, so I will say $20 million a year. ;)
  • JohnnyEnjoi65JohnnyEnjoi65 Posts: 65Registered User Junior Member
    my major at my college averages about 50K a year, so at least that much.

    I laught at all of you thinking you will be making $50k right out of college. I will be happy with $25-$30k.
