I've grown up on 50-150k a year for the latter half of my life, I'd like to match to exceed that by the time I'm late 30's, early 40's which could be possible in Medicine I think.
I'm male and I voted for 100k plus. However this is if I was to assess my life purely on financial terms. If I was to take all aspects of life into account then I would be happy with any amount that allows me to live comfortably as long as I enjoy the job. I think enjoying my life is more important than having a massive salary. But if I don't like my job then I want to be earning a ******** lol.
gah you've wrecked your experiment by stating the aim lol. (im really not that anal but i've just been reading 'bad science'. :P
I put between 70-99, obviously I'd be happy with more, but 70-99 is very realistic, 100k is not entirely unreachable but i would be happy to be in the 90k's within 10 years.
Well the males on this poll are certainly optimistic....
I'd be happy with around £70k per year. Enough to live very comfortably and be able to afford holidays abroad and to pay my childrens university tuition fees without blinking!
I voted 20-27k. If I was on say 25k a year ten years after I graduate(fingers crossed) I would be fairly happy. I would like more but what I would like is different to what I would be happy with.
Everyone here seems a bit mental though.
Haha, I love how the males have got a massive anomaly!
Well, with my future career path, I'd better be happy with the minimum, or else I am going to be one disappointed Archaeologist!
I really don't know actually, I seem capable of living incredibly cheaply. I think £25,000 - £30,000 for me is like £40,000 for most people, because I'm very happy to get cheap cars, clothes etc
But when it comes to having a wife, kids and all of that I might want more.
10 years isn't a long time at all... there are gonna be a lot of disappointed tsr users!
100k+ tho by that point I expect to have my buisness running by that point so from my degree 30k+.
10 years after graduation £35k+. I say that, but it would depend on other things about the job. If I worked say for Google, then I'd happily take a cut because the work environment is amazing, the staff are extremely friendly (the few I've spoken to at least) and the projects I'd be working on would be very interesting indeed.
If I was working as a manager of some sort for a store though, I'd probably want a bit more, at least to cover some of the stress it may entail.
I'd hope to have kids around 5-10 years after graduation, so money would play a fairly substantial role, unfortunately.
100k sounds good. Given that I will want to send my sister to uni, provide for my parents and have a nice house.
Funny how the girls think that the guys are somewhat mental for being happy with the highest possible salary. Well, if we don't aim for the top, how are we going to get there?
I expect to be retired by 30 years old so zero.
