re: Starting salary for your career
started at 72k. Make my own hours, get paid extra for any time over 40. I also started with full benefits, 401k matching, and 5 weeks vaca.

Happy I did not take the first offers I got right out of college.

35k. It was shite money but the opportunity to make 6x that was there. I don't make near 6x that but it was the right decision.

i believe it .. local TV doesn't pay jack shite .. it is a somewhat cruel joke that mass comm schools play on a lot of these kids today ..

I love working with numbers so it's great. I planned on doing product marketing but that's pretty lame at my company. Get to travel to Asia and Europe a lot which can be fun but suck also

its terrible. everyone assumes its glamorous when its not. first thing I tell students that reach out for advice is to be prepared to make very little money - in a way its good because it weeds out the people who just want to be on tv, but it's pretty bad just starting out. the longer you're with a local station the better it gets, but entry level is terrible. i still havent made anywhere near what most of my friends make in their respective jobs.

re: Starting salary for your career
yeah, the market is just so saturated now with media jobs relative to the advent of the internet too .. it is as if the attitude is "here .. do this for pennies, if you don't like it, step aside and the next guy will do it for pennies .." .. you almost have to be somewhat entrepreneurial to make any decent money on television anymore, at the local level ..
