    If everything fell into place for you in the future, when you're nearing retirement, what would you say would be your ideal job level/title and total income at that point?

    What about net worth?
    I'd like my final job to be teaching, so probably around £30,000 :laugh:

    But before that I would like to have a job in IB, consultancy or accountancy.

    Seems to be a trend with the whole city career --> teaching thing. Is that just to unwind after a career of long hours?

    Pretty much. And perhaps the fact you should have enough money saved to have a decent lifestyle and (most likely) no mortgage to worry about.

    Lol teaching is NOT a career you can unwind with. It is stressful af, almost as much as a city career

    I just think it's a very rewarding career since you're shaping your students' futures and you are partly responsible for their success or failure. It would be a great feeling to make someone realise their potential and succeed in something, especially when they have a long future ahead of them. Some of my teachers have been really good at doing this and that kinda inspired me.

    Well.. It still is less stressful considering the stakes, hours and time off.

    I guess there's the argument of being a role model for your pupils to aspire to!

    It is less stressful in that way but teachers do have to deal with annoying students who won't learn which is pretty hard and tiring.

    It is less stressful than finance but it is still more stressful than most jobs and not really an unwinding job like working at a corner shop or volunteering.

    But yeah, being a role model and giving back to the community (if I manage to get a job at my high school) would be great

    I'm going to uni for either English Lang or linguistics (hopefully). Not too sure on what I wanna persue afterwards but I'm pretty interested in speach therapy so maybe a masters in that. According to google (lol) they start on around 21-28,000. After many years of working in the field I hope to be making at least 35,000 or more. Idk tho I could decide tomorrow that I wanna be a teacher or a trapeze artist or a marine biologist...

    Baker. Bakers do not make that much money so any amount of money that pay bills and live nicely is the ideal income.

    Same! I'm so grateful for the videos I watched in the morning. Pretty much the style of questions I watched in the morning of the exam, came up in the exam!!

    Hopefully, I can reach a high position in a space exploration company e.g. SpaceX, NASA etc.

    And I hope that would be over $100,000 a year eventually.

    Whatever will make me happy and give me enough money to a) survive b) have a few leisure activities c) not be homeless lol
    I would love to be an academic but that can't happen. I might like to be a writer but that can't happen. I've thought about teaching/tutoring but I know I wouldn't really like it or be adept at it; too much social awkwardness. So I guess the best option is to just fade out of existence when I've finished uni.
