    I voted what it was before I quit my job at the beginning of last month.

    In NYC I was making $75k and am 27 years old.

    For my position I was actually fairly underpaid. Average for the job was $100k.

    I worked as a Business Analyst in the Financial Industry.

    I think it will vary a lot by location. I’m an administrative assistant, I make about 30k. It’s quite a bit higher than minimum wage obviously but it’s definitely lower than most around here.
     
    I’m 22 🙂

    I’m 24 and make $60K/year in Regulatory Affairs (Biomedical engineering degree).

    Darling Husband is 25 and makes about $63K/year as a healthcare consultant (Industrial engineering degree).

    (I included us both since I know you go to GT like we did.  Thought I’d include the extra GT grad!)

    @Mrs.KMM: I thought about doing my degree in biomedical engineering. I was a bio major instead, I hope to get back into biotech at some point. Probably on the business side now.

    I make about 30K a year and am an office manager in Santa Barbara.  That’s barely scraping by here.  Lameface. 🙁

    @KatNYC2011: A Bio major who became a Business Analyst in the Financial Industry, hum??  That can’t be the typical pathway! 🙂

    I definitely have more interest in the pure sciences side of BME than the engineering side.  If I hadn’t been BME, I probably would have been Bio or BioChem over some other type of engineering.  I thought about going to grad school for virology or my MPH.

    @Mrs.KMM: Yeah.. pretty non-standard career path, but I really enjoy the work.

    My dream job would be something in the horse world, but I think I’m just going to have to find a career I like enough to support my horse habit!

    definately location will make a difference. Think about cost of living in San Francisco vs South Bend, Indiana?!

    I’m a grad student/ college instructor. They pay me in tears and inferiority. 

     

    But seriously, I make juuuuuust enough to make rent and buy food and beer for 2 people in a major city in California, pending no mishaps or emergencies. Knock on wood.

    @Beluga: Gotta love how you are/are educating the next generation, but the pay is barely enough to get by.
