I make about 30k a year. For being a customer service representative in a health care company and the area it isn’t terrible. Its not something I plan to do long term, but I want to work my way up. My degree is in animal science, so it is a totally different field. I do enjoy it though. The benefits are pretty good too which really helps.

At 20 years old I was making 37k as a Financial Advisor at a college. I was ranked number one in the whole company. I quit that a year and a half ago to pursue music, and I probably only make 20k per year, but I am SO FREAKIN HAPPY. I now work from home as songwriter and I get actual satisfaction out of what I do, and I set my own schedule. It allows me to take vacations whenever I want, and really do anything at any time. Plus, the growth potential is enormous and my rates are increasing each month. I should be back to making 37k in about a year, and hopefully exceed that, working wayyy less than I did.
Just a note to young people, just because the money is good doesn’t mean you need to stay there. This is the time when you’re still allowed to take risks. My previous job was extremely supportive of my following in my dreams and would still take me back if I wanted. The best decision I have ever made.

I make around 20,000  and my fiance makes around 30,000 . We live in a rural area so we live quite nice from what little we make. We aren’t struggling and often have “play money” available. We have savings and would be okay if something would happen to one of us.

I’m not in sales, but I’m in a salaried + commission based position. I recruit internally for a telesales, marketing and technology start-up company. I make a base of 45K + quarterly bonuses. That puts me around 60k annually. I cut my salary in half from my big corporate job to regain my passion for my industry and to get away from the bullshit. I’m my own boss; I love it. Work hard now and hopefully the pay off will be handsome!
The Fiance makes around 70k in retail as a assistant manager. When he graduates in December his profession in HVAC engineer sales will be “really fun” as he called it.

I’m 23 and I just recently started as a CSR at a major telecommunications company. I’m technically part time (although I do get benefits) and my annual salary works out to just over $20k, but I also get commission. I just graduated with history & education degrees last year, but I’m not sure about teaching anymore… So we’ll see where this company can take me for now.

I’m 23 and make $89k as an engineer working for a top company. It’s about (slightly above) average for the starting salary for my field and in the city we live in.
My SO also is an engineer at the same company but in a slightly different role and makes $87k at 24 years old.
We live in a very expensive city though, so that money doesn’t go as far as you might think for us. We are comfortably middle class right now, but that could change in our futures with promotions and raises.
