Taeyoun’s Answer

Initially you may get disappointed, but expectation is a goal of yours. I was getting paid less than what I expected as a college graduates, but that expectation became my goal. So I worked hard to improve my skills to achieve that goal and Now I am getting paid more. I suggest you do the same, if you didn't get what you wanted, make it a goal and achieve it. Growth not only come mentally, physically, and spiritually, but also financially as well.

I think this worry is one of those things that is a bit out of your control. Like Taeyoun mentioned, you can certainly set goals for yourself and work towards a higher salary if you are initially disappointed, but I would not spend time worrying. I would focus on finding fulfilling work, and adjusting your lifestyle to your salary. Or, you could prioritize finding a consistently well-paid job to avoid this worry.

Simeon’s Answer

Yes, this concern does come up. As you get older, your needs and values can change, which often leads to an inflation in the amount of money that you need for your lifestyle. However, keeping an eye on spending and thinking critically about one's expenses can help reduce this inflation significantly.

Alexandra’s Answer

Hi Edwin! While everyone works for a salary and we all hope to earn enough to have a decent life style and not be worrying about how to make ends-meet I would say that ultimately only focusing on what you earn will never give you true satisfaction. Firstly because it doesn't how much money someone makes, you will feel excited about a pay rise for a while and then when you start to adjust to your new salary it will become mundane again. And secondly and more importantly because career satisfaction comes from how you do your job, the connections you make with colleagues, and finding out what you are capable of.
