    RosaBride:  I had a hard time voting, because last year I made about $38k pre tax, and this year I’m on track to make $40-60k, depending. I’m a real estate agent. Last year I would have made over $60k except I was with a brokerage which took a large percentage of my commission. I’ve since changed offices. So I voted $40-60k since it’s a decent average in a good year. 

    ETA: I’m 25, working in the Denver area. Our market is supposed to be the second fastest growing in the US. I know there are lots making much more than me, and many many many more making much less. There are a lot of part-time realtors who are stay at home moms or have another career and do it for the side cash.

    wineenthusiast:  lawstudentbee:  Biggest goal for me was finding a legal job I liked haha. And to be honest, sort of just lucked into a job I never thought I’d be into.  First few years are tough. I was making less than I expected I would be (economy had just crashed), cost of living in NYC and loans were taking most of what I did make, and I was working all.the.damn.time.  Other legal bees can give you their experience but most lawyers I know became very disillusioned with the profession in the first 3-5 years. Many considered leaving the practice and nearly everyone wished they could undo going to lawschool, mostly due to loans. But it gets better. Five years in, you might have paid off loans or are at least beginning to see a significant dent, you know what you’re doing, maybe you’ve left the firm job for more manageable hours, etc etc.   I know you didn’t ask, but I wish someone had told me that it might suck for a while but it’s temporary.
