Hi bees! In the other thread speaking about careers, someone mentioned the pay was good for her age. This made me wonder what the average salary is for women early in their careers. I realize this will vary by industry and location, but maybe it will give some insight!

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).
DH 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.
