Having a car/pets/children would eat most of that. I know he never stated that he wanted any of those things, I'm just suprised, given an open question of how much you would like to earn, he'd go for such a low figure.

Why? Because some jobs don't pay more than 2k per month so if he wants to do one of those jobs and values job enjoyment more than money, than he's fine with it.

If I wanted a lot of money I would not bother with my second master and PhD.

Yes, and people responded to the question by saying 20k is enough. Sure, more is better or something.

I think I can do most things for 2k per month.


Guess you've never heard of income tax, or math for that matter.

EDIT: Evidentally you're not in the states (despite your location being Arkham Asylum... ). Wherever you are, do they only have 10 months?

I wasn't multiplying 2k times 12. I was quoting the 20, and giving the 2k as a number myself. Nice try.

Also it's 2k net. Why would anyone talk about income before taxes?

Nice try smug one.

I spend £50 on food but I admittedly do love my food

I make about 12K now and would really only think about moving out if my girlfriend made the same. 2K a month is alright but I'd want some savings behind me and some spending money (we are on ultimate-guitar after all).
Gear:

Gibson 2005 Les Paul Standard
Fender Road Worn Strat w/ Noiseless pickups
Marshall JCM 2000 401C
Marshall Vintage Modern 2266

Ibanez TS9DX
EHX Little Big Muff

I'm earning a little over 21k a year right now. By the time I retire if like to be making close to 60k.
Being military my pay is linked to time in service and rank so most my career I won't sit at a constant salary for more than a few years.

Damn Netherlands with their high incomes.

I'll be lucky to make 30,000 before taxes with my profession.

If I'd choose to work in Germany it'd be even less!
#87
Well, hopefully in the next couple of years when I get slightly further along in my career, I hope to be earning a basic salary of thirty grand a year, plus a decent day rate. Call it, take home thirty to thirty five in the next three years? After that, the only way is up, probably peak around the £50,000 mark.

Well I think teachers here start on 20, 000 and it goes up every year. After 5 years they hit 30K. I would need 10 years of experience to reach over 40K according to a survey I read.

I want to earn a lot, and I probably will. Assuming I finish my degree, I'll be making 80k a year straight out of uni. That will very quickly rise into the six figures, and probably 200K+ later on in my career. Im pretty happy with that. Tbh, I'm not afraid to admit this, I like expensive things. I want enough money for a waterfront apartment in the city during my 20's and a really nice car, oh, and suits! I love suits. Oh, and expensive food, I mean, i do love my crappy cheap food too, but nothing beats an amazing steak from a fancy restaurant.

Ill be happy with 160-180k mid career, that sounds really good to me. Enough for anything I could want, and a lot left over for retirement, charity, and some sort of fund for my (hopefully) kids future.

What's your degree in?

Medicine.

And here in NZ, graduating with a medical degree gets you an automatic job pretty much (Not like the U.S with a residency match and all that), it's very secure.
I think the actual pay for first year after graduating is 60k a year, but since everyone works so much overtime, it usually becomes 80k.

Pay rises steadily and very quickly, especially in the first few years.

You don't need to do residency? That's crazy.
In the states doctors need to do residency but during that time they are getting paid. I think the figures are a little less than what you make in Australia.

If I follow through on attaining the advanced degrees I wish to pursue, I'd be disappointed with anything below six figures. Especially if I come back to New York where that isn't really very much.

We do residency! It's not called residency here though, you're a house officer for two years, then a registrar then something else. All I meant is that the "match" here isn't some stress-filled nightmare like in the U.S, it's a lot more secure and easier because we have a larger shortage of doctors than the U.S.
During our equivalent of "residency" though, we get payed a good amount, not like the 50 or so thousand a year they get in the U.S. At the end of your equivalent of residency (A final year registrar) you will be into the six figures easily.
This is balanced out by how much higher U/S doctor's salaries get in the later years, we don't get that much in the end hahaha.

Yeah, australian doctors earn more than NZ, which is why we lose so many of our graduates to australian hospitals. On the other hand, thats why doctors have such amazing job security here. We don't earn quite as much, but complete job security + lifestyle makes up for it (The pay is amazing anyway though)

If you started a private practice why wouldn't you pull in as much as our doctors? Our doctors can easily get up to the 400 grand marking if they're specialists like cardiologists and whatnot.

I know an oncologist that works partly in the public system, and partly in his own private practice, and he makes around 280k a year, so I'm pretty sure he could be making 350K+ if he went fully private practice.
I'm not 100% sure how high pay goes for private practices here in general, but I know it's not quite as much as aussie doctors. Our salaries in general are lower NZ, and apparently it's especially apparent when it comes to the health profession.

Sorry I don't know more, I want to work in the public system in a large hospital, so that's what I know a lot more about.

20 kilopounds a year would be nice. I just hope I don't end up homeless.

Ideally, I'd want enough to live in a house with a garage, where I can have a workshop and make stuff. It would have to be in the middle of nowhere so I don't bother the neighbours. I dunno if that's achieveable but a man can dream.

I want to get to $100,000 a year. I'm doing something that I didn't go to college for so it would be an accomplishment to get to that amount with no degree and thumb my nose at my mother, who said i'd be nothing if I didn't complete my bachelors in Art.

Teaching middle school right now and make just over 40K in the school I work at now. I also teach college part time in the evenings, and pull about 20K in for that each year. Once my wife starts to work (she is graduating with her professional degree in a few weeks), we will hopefully double our household income. That'll be plenty for me.


For what its worth, I worked in a job that had a much higher earning potential, and the money wasn't worth the agony. Seriously -- look around. Rich people aren't happy.

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.

The way I see it, lots of money lets you sleep a tiny bit better at night. It also gives you options. If you need to change something, or have to change something, hopefully you have enough money behind you to perform this change.
