Starting salary for your career
Was making $15/hr + $800/mo living expenses as an intern 2 semesters ago. Will be going back to work 2 more semesters in the summer before I graduate.
Extrapolated over a full year it comes out to ~$38k/yr. Not entirely sure what I'd be making there once I graduate, but Auburn claims ME graduates average a starting salary right around $60k/yr.
eta: forgot that the company I work for does a good bit of travel and we get to pocket whatever per diem we don't spend. Lots of guys came back from month long business trips to Italy and Spain with a ~$1-2k in per diem savings on top of their salary.
