I'll be applying for a job that gives out £100 per day and need me to work 5 times in a week. Is this a good wage arrangement?

If the most money I earn in my life is 24 grand per year, I'd be fine with that (rising in time with inflation obvs).

For an 18 year old it is amazing. Even for a graduate it is not to be sniffed at, even if this is in London.

You couldn't be more wrong .

I have ambitions to be the best person I can be, to grow, experience, live, to touch people's lives, to love, to be happy and to make others happy.

I want to research animal behaviour for the benefit of the animals themselves. Or perhaps trek round jungles as a tour guide. Or run a cat hotel. Or become a carer, or a perhaps a psychologist, or a counsellor.

The past few years I've worked for free on projects that were meaningful to me. I've helped kids, adults, old folk, monkeys, birds. I've had some of the best times of my life. More than anything money can buy.

The pursuit of more and more money doesn't make you ambitious - it makes you greedy.

It depends what you are going to use the money for, does it not?

Not the one to brag but my father runs this bank and he'll employ me when I'm a graduate, so i'm not really worrying too much about mid twenties, I just need some bucks now because my mother called me a lazy leech who just sits around and does nothing infront of my little brother, which made me almost break a window out of anger LOOL

Tech retail.

It's a relatively new company though and why reject a £75,000 just cause it's not your field LOL.

You'll be making nearly £200,000 in just 2 years LOOOL.

Dude that's pretty ****ing great at 18, people way older than you are struggling to get even that.

It's like £12.50 per hour if it's a full time job, which is almost double the minimum wage, so yeah, go for it!

When you're making your fortune, come show me how you donate most of it to charitable causes, then. I'll eat my hat.

For 18 & a student, that's a good wage yes.

For an 18 year old, getting 80 pounds a week is normal, working weekends at whatever retail shop. getting £100 a day, is unbelievably great, almost too great to be true.
