Adam’s Answer

Hi Laurelyn,

You'll find it varies based on where you live. In the SF Bay Area, compensation is a lot higher due to the increased cost of living (especially housing). The most important thing to consider is how much you're making relative to the cost of living.

That said, compensation range wildly in the field of finance. Payment may also be in different forms (salary, bonuses, etc.). My best advice would be to find a place where you can (a) live on the money you make and (b) get an incredible amount of experience. There's plenty of money to be made in finance, and focusing your first few years on really getting good experience will pay off immensely. I would also say this broadly applies to most jobs -- you have to be able to live, but don't focus on the highest number. Future you will make that money back later with all the experience you receive.

For ideas of how much to expect to make in a position, go to Glassdoor.com and search for the job title and location you're interested in (since salary varies a lot from location to location). Glassdoor gives you a range, so if you are at entry level, you'll be in the bottom of the range, and if you have several years of experience, you may be near the top of the range. I'd expect being around the middle is where most folks are.

For long-term growth, I'd suggest looking online for trends in the career you're interested in to see how much the salary has climbed to forecast future income.

Depends on the location and practice setting, eg private practice vs academic medicine.

Dermatologists can expect to make $250,000 to $500,000 per year.
