How I Found My First "Real Job" and How Much I Got Paid...That's Right I'm Posting My Salary.
As a fairly recent college graduate starting salary is probably one of the main factors I looked at when deciding what I wanted to study--along with my interests and job availability. I admit it, money was a deciding factor in my degree. Hey, nothing wrong with that...financially, what makes sense? But in the end, money didn't win out. My passion for teaching and a rewarding career is what won out...for my degree...but I ended up in a computer job even after all the planning... Why am I revealing my starting salary? It's my salary from many years ago, so it's not as relevant today (i.e. My coworkers finding out is not as bad). Is it close to what I'm making now? I leave that for you to discover. I can let you know that I currently work one full-time job and hold a part-time job as well. So hah, now figure out my salary.
