@teaberrie:  only for a few years though! after those few years, you’ll net way more, and your student loans would have been worth it.

@Nouna_:  Not trying to scare you away from something you want to do- but my cousin is a speech pathologist and while she totally loves her job, her student loans are quite large, and it will take her years to pay off- she pays just around $700/month to pay back loans!!

@the_newlymintedmrs-s17:  Oo that makes me happy! Haha I’m in school for speech language pathology right now.

Age: 20

Occupation: Full time student. School year – research assistant. Summer – cook at a bar, caregiver for the disabled, and child care worker for a family support agency (all part time).

“Salary”: I should make about $3-4k in total this year. My research assistant job is really for my resume. Thankfully I have excellent scholarships and a college fund from my parents to use for school related expenses. Over the summer I couldn’t find a full time job so I was stuck with a couple part time jobs that really didn’t add up the way I had hoped they would.

All of this should change when I graduate undergrad in May and start grad school – then it’s student loan debt time. But I’m hoping it will all work out and I have a very supportive, hardworking Fiance to help me.

Age: 21

Occupation: Governess

Salary: $52k or $85k depending on how you look at it – it’s a little complicated. All my living costs are paid for by my employers – rent, electricity, water, food, vehicle, petrol, etc. – the only expense I have is liability insurance which is $45 per month. So in total, my salary package is $85k however I am ‘paid’ $52k per annum – which is saved, spent on travel or on luxury items.

ETA: I have 8-10 weeks paid leave per year.

  • Wedding: February 2014

Age: 29

Occupation: LPN

Salary: Last year I made about 50k gross.  
I would make less if I worked a nice day job at a doctor’s office. But I work crazy shifts, holidays, work double shifts if anyone can’t show up due to illness or weather, etc. So that helps up my salary. Also, how much you make depends a good deal on what area you live in. Cost of living can vary widely. I’m trying to find a new apartment and can’t find a decent one bedroom place in this county for under $1200 a month. A really nice one that includes anything would be even more. I plan to eventually go back and get my RN, but I’m waiting until after the wedding.

@mrspinesol:  I agree. I’m a temporary teacher. So bascially I have my own classroom for the entire year: I write my own lessons, I manage grades, student behaviors, activities, field trips, EVERYTHING. Then next year I’m in a new room again and start it all over again.

If I were permanent, I’d probably make 10k more. Which would be better, but still not fair for someone who works 60+ hours a week.

  • Wedding: October 2014 - Disney

Age: 32

Occupation: Business Administrator

Salary: 60k

 

I am just starting this job, and they changed the title/duties for me since they know this job ends in a year and this company wanted to get me in so they could rebid me into a different position as my degree will be completed in a year. They had plans of putting me into another position (Travel/Cost Anaylst) but their bid fell through. Next year my title will probably be Program Cost Controller/Budget Analyst we anticipate a salary hike of 15-20k with that position shift as well.

@mrspinesol:  Definitely. PA has some of the hardest requirements to become a teacher in the nation, and we also have the most teachers! Teachers don’t make much when they first start out here, but once they near retirement it becomes a fair pay. (Though, all teachers at that level don’t necessarially earn the money.. if you know what I mean) Once tenured is granted, we also have good benefits and a supportive union.
