What is a 'good salary' in the USA?
I've never had to worry about money before, fortunately. However, I have been told that I need to consider my future salary when choosing a career path. #college #career #money #job #salary #money-management #financial-planning
That's a tough question to answer. A lot of it will depend on the cost of living in the area you're at.
For example, I grew up around Washington DC where housing can be pretty expensive. But then I went to school at Virginia Tech, which is in a small town in southern VA. The cost of housing there was a fraction of what it is in DC. To sum things up, it's very subjective to where you live and your lifestyle.
Just remember, you could make a 'good salary' but hate your job - what's the fun in that? Do what you love, work hard at it, and hopefully the money will follow!
Adjust this for your area to decide what a good salary is according to your standard of living.
