lol, I make about 5000 a year. Would you consider any minimum wage jobs?
No, I'm studying engineering, min wage job doesn't really correlate. Unless I do something completely unrelated to my degree before getting into a serious career

My reply was the last on the previous page.

Whats the relavence of the question?

How does the fact I've worked below minimum wage (before the 16/17 rate was set) and opened a petrol station at 6am for 20% more than minimum wage (on hawking myself/CV around a trading estate) have a bearing on my earning expectations on graduation?

One if looking for a minimum wage job, one is looking for a grad job.

Confused...

Well I have a degree in Film and TV, I doubt that will enable me to get a working visa.
The degree subject is irrelevant. Any degree (ideally a BA) will do.

Yeah once, I'd happily work again at min wage before getting my degree. No shame in it

I didn't realise how crap the starting salary for a doctor was until I started speaking to non-medic friends about what their salaries are going to be.
Very annoying given that my hours are going to be ridiculous :mad:

I've never heard 21k as starting salary of doctors..I'm sure it's higher, where did you get that figure?
Edit: Just checked the NHS website, and thats the bare minimum, I think you'd be paid more living in London than say Sunderland as a doctor. Also it increases in your 2nd year to 28k anyway, so hardly anything to fret about

Doctors get banding on that salary too so not great salary but not as bad as you make it out to be

Plus most FY1s/2s I know make up a lot more through overtime. At least you guys get paid for extra shifts.

If I got paid for overtime I'd be minted. Unfortunately, overtime just reduces my effective hourly rate to almost call centre levels...

Ideally, between 30-50K. Reality, between 15-25K
This definitely is the reality!
