re: Starting salary for your career


My first job was right at $28k in 2011. No benefits or shite like that, only mileage. Some weeks, I made more on mileage than I did on salary.

Had to come back to school because I would've stayed at that salary for 5 years, then gone up to $35k for 10 years, then $45k. frick that

$9.00 per hour, after 90 days it went to $9.45.
Sperry in 1984.
I was overpaid.

It was a big step down in pay from offshore, but it got me into IT.

Out of college I was making $30k, three years later making $40k. I'm fine with that for now. I have the house and car I want and go on a couple of vacations a year.
