What do you honestly think of your career?
What is your average salary?
What is the best route to take in college?
Is there many passion oriented coworkers in your field?
My favorite classes are science, more importantly, biology. I am in 12th grade and fascinated by the inner workings of living things.
My salary is not for sharing but is made up of base salary, bonus, stock and benefits.
Best route - 4 year degree, then masters - most fortune 100 looking for masters. Then work for 5-10 years and get an MBA to equip you for management
Most people I work with are passionate of what they are doing.
Great that you are passionate about the sciences and biology - aim high in
Mary Carol’s Answer
In my own field of Software Engineering, I've seen firsthand the power of passion. Colleagues who truly love what they do thrive on overcoming the challenges and obstacles they encounter. The mantra of "Follow your passion" isn't just an inspiring catchphrase - it's a reality for many. However, it's essential to remember that even when your work aligns with your passion, there's a risk of burnout.
Therefore, it's crucial to have other interests, even if they're not as intense as your main passion, to help alleviate the pressures of your professional life. The truth is, even when you're working in a field you love, it can still generate stress and frustration. There will be times when you'll need to step back and take a break.
Don't let your job engulf you, as often happens with newcomers to the workforce. Strive to maintain a balance that allows you to keep moving forward at your own pace. It's all about ensuring that you can continue to enjoy what you do for as long as you choose.
