    I'd love to be earning 35k at some point in my life.

    Although to be honest, I'd be happy with whatever allows me to live, go out with friends and travel.

    I would expect to be on 35-40k by the time I'm 30, 60-80k by the time I'm 40. and 100k+ by the time I'm 50.

    As long as I make more than my father (25k a year) I'd be happy lol.
    Probably around 30k though.

    Damn straight! Got loads of awesome things coming up! A couple of really good gigs, a comedy night, the return of the F1 season, hopefully a trip to the Belgian GP this year, trips to the countryside, the perigee of the moon, band practice and the fair at the park. Add this lovely weather and I really couldn't ask for more!

    Money is all good, but I really don't need much to be happy.
    To be fair, you need money to be able to do that stuff

    25k a yr is a little right?
    Ummm no.
    Its around the average salary in the UK, and there are an awful lot of families on less than that as a household.

    I want to aim for at least my age. So at 24 earn £24,000, at 30 earn £30,000, etc.

    Although this is the minimum I'd want to earn, ideally it would be more than this. Once I'm at "maximum earnings" if you like, I wouldn't mind being on over £70k.

    Whether this will happen or not is another matter.

    Salary is irrelevant. I would work for free for my perfect job.
    And how will you pay your bills whilst your working for 'free' ... that was such a dumb thing to say

    I am currently earning 27K per annum at and get to travel with work a lot so i'm very lucky. However I am giving it all up to go back to university as I had to leave due to health troubles!

    I know that my start wage in my new career will be substantially lower than what I am on now and it will take me a long time to get back but I think you have to think about what you enjoy and love and balance that against your monetary expectations!

    But to answer your question about 35-40k would make life more comfortable

    Considering my parents both earn over 60k I probably want a job that earns at its peak 100k.

    I'm 25, earning £20k, would like to be on £25k by October which I'd be very happy with considering my highest qualification is an A in GCSE maths.

    I am in pretty much the same situation. Though I am 22 :smug:

    :p:


    My ideal salary would be in the high sixties by the next election. :scrooge:

    Once I get some experience and contacts, I want to become a private contractor. That way I'll get to set my own hours and own wage (providing I'm still offering an a good price for my services).

    Whilst employed by someone else....£40K per annum.
    When I start my own business, I'd be happy with paying myself....£150,000 per annum, with a healthy company turnover of £5 million or so per annum.

    Enough to pay the rent/mortgage on a house and travel a bit I'm hoping to go into academic research/lecturing but I can't imagine salaries in humanities will be fantastic. To be honest right now, as long as I have some sort of work and can save up some pennies for the masters I'll be happy.
