I reckon you'd actually reach your peak at 45 and then the old age is actually a negative factor. I'd like to earn at least £ 40k by today's standards - ideally £50-100 k.

I think there has been a shift recently in attitudes towards work.

I think for the last generation getting the best job possible and dealing with (all the extra crap/stress it brings) it to get as much money/status as possible was 'all that' but nowadays I have certainly seen a trend amongst students/young people where they are less willing to do jobs they hate for money - i.e they want a lot more job satisfaction.

I expect, given the qualifications I intend to achieve, I'd be quite capable of earning in excess of 100k by the time I'm in my 40s. However, I don't expect to ever earn more than 40k, and I'll be happy with just enough to buy food and rent something which has space for a bed if I'm doing a job I genuinely have a passion for. I really can't bring myself to care about money at all.

I'm planning on being a teacher, so I would expect to be making around 41K by today's standards when I'm 60. But if I was in a leadership position, like head teacher, I could make up to 100K.

Of course, I can't expect to know what career I'll be doing in 41 years from now, let alone my salary.

I'll be making 30K when I'm 23, if I get a teaching job in central London.

Well, slightly OT but I was looking at the Times Education job section today (not sure when the paper was from) and they had something crazy like 10 pages full of headteacher jobs..you'd think half the schools in the country had no headteachers - so if its still like that in 25 years you might be in luck!

figures generally seemed to be 50-80k tho some went higher. A lot of general management jobs lfying around that dont actually inlcude teaching (or the ability to teach) - which is how i think the schools of the future will be run.

Heck as much as possible! But hopefully something around 200K. That won't seem like as much as it is now because of inflation (at 2% inflation in 50 years 200K is worth about 74K nowadays. meh.)

With my degree I'd hopefully start with 30-35k and eventually could be any figure really.

My brother has just started on £35k and he's 24, given the degree I am doing I think it's doubtful I'll start on that. I'd like to start on about £25-30k in the City.

Once I get to £100,000 (hopefully not too far into my thirties) be it single income or supplemented by property rental, I'll retire and have kids, if my husband is earning enough to give me a lavish lifestyle without me working

By the time I'm 60 I would hope that I had already had a job which paid well enough so that I didn't have to work at that age :p:

But at the best of my career I hope to be earning at least 40,000

EDIT: actually at least 50k ... I like to aim high :p:

Well, assuming you didn't marry a cad like myself, you may well find that marriage is very convenient. Two salaries, after all - the ability to buy and inhabit a larger house with a larger mortgage etc.

What makes you think I couldn't get a larger house by myself :p:
I have high ambitions for myself (perhaps a little too high :rolleyes:) but we can all dream.
