5 Things You Need to Give up to Get A Job

Money Matters, but It Isn’t Everything

The average entry-level salary for Americans in 2010 is around $43,000. Some of you will earn considerably more than this and others considerably less, but most of you will fall into this range. More Americans are going to college now than ever before. This means that the degree isn’t as valuable as it once was. What used to set you apart with an associate’s degree may now require bachelor’s degree or master’s degree.

The Good News:

At this point, if you are lucky enough to be offered a position that pays your bills and will start you on a career path towards your long-term goals, then take it. You need experience and professional skills more than you need big paychecks right now. Work hard, learn a lot, challenge yourself, grow in your experience, and the money will come later.
