I barely made the cut but I guess at 25 I’m still a young bee, woo.

I am a full time student, I have no idea what I’m aiming for yet.

Before school I was a Secretary/Office assistant, at that job I made 10.00 an hour. But I live in Oregon and that’s not too bad pay, not amazing but it’s liveable for sure.

I currently don’t have a job, but I’m in school to be an elementary teacher. I’ll graduate in May of 2014. Starting salary for a public school teacher around here is about 30k.

Just out of undergrad, I was 21 and took a 2-year postbac position in an anxiety disorders clinic. I made about $20K in a college town (which actually goes a long way, lol) doing research on the anxiety spectrum, as well as running the clinic, doing b$tch work, and managing patients with graduate students. Now I’m a graduate student in a Med Psych program, I get a small raise as of next year, and I’m still doing research and clinical work – just on the next level. ETA: I’m 23 now.

End goal? Academic research position at a university, or maybe at a hospital where I can buy out the majority of my clinic hours and focus on research in chronic pain conditions. The pay raise at that point can be pretty dramatic – I think neuropsychologists range up to about $90K starting in some places.

I’m the office manager at my family’s oil company, I make about $40k and I’m 23. I plan on staying there, and one day taking over when my dad retires.

I’m 25, and I work in the billing department of a Japanese telecom company.  I’m in the $40-45K range.


Immediately after I graduated at age 21, I moved to Japan and became an English teacher in their public school system.  I made $37K there.

I’m 23.  I work front desk at a hotel and make $8.50/hour which isn’t nearly enough, especially living with a Fiance who can’t find work and just ran out of UC. .___.

I’m 25 and just went back to school (starting a week ago!) to become a family nurse practitioner after working in sexual assault counseling/advocacy and then with kids in a psychiatric unit. I decided I’d like to provide medical care in additional to counseling and education which is why I am going back to school. I’m primarily interested in working with children or women of reproductive age (especially providing pre/postnatal care). So what am I making right now? Nothing! Besides the occasional babysitting job. Ah!

I am 22 and I am a butcher at a supermarket right now I make about 21k a year but I am aiming to be the meat manager by age 25(60k salary) and a store manager by age 30(110k salary). All the plans are going nicely and everything is falling into place so hopefully I will be able to accomplish those goals.

I’m almost 24 and I’m a pharmacy intern while I’m in pharmacy school (2 more years after this until I graduate), and I make $12/hr. I get a $1.00 raise/year as a fixed intern rate, so by the time I graduate I’ll be making $14/hr. I don’t work a lot because I am full time in school though.

I’m hoping to work for the same company as a pharmacist in a few years. Starting salary is around $95-100k, with pharmacy managers making more than that. Not sure if I want that role or not. Maybe 5+ years down the road. Maybe not.
