@whereismyname
the fact that someone can make $100 an hour and still have nothing better to do than go on this website, maybe money really can't buy happiness afterall.

I'm not sure if you're lying. How much could one get starting with a Finance/Econ major at a fortune 200 or 500 company. Tbh I don't know much about the market.

Anywhere from 20-40 bucks an hour, usually. I started off at 20 as a paid intern, and after a year from graduation was making 43.

Meh my net worth is higher than it's ever been and I've found myself on Veeky Forums more than usual and even worrying about finances more than usual.

When I lived paycheck to paycheck I strangely enjoyed everything more

Thanks.

How hard would it be to start at a junior college and graduate with two majors?

AwesomeTucker

@Firespawn
Not hard at all. That's what I did. I went to a pretty good CC, although I would say half of the people there were in highschool 2.0. Don't hang around them. Hang around those who are serious about going to a four year after they get their prerequisites done.

What is one thing that would help to get ahead of the curve in this field? What exactly is it that you do?

I saw that. I was asking about something that a veteran has that other people applying wouldn't have, like a skill. My other question was about what he does.

@Lunatick

Be able to show how you can take complex quantitative data and turn it into useful qualitative decisions and not be a sperg about it. I was able to take some benifits data and allow my boss to shave 10% off what we were spending in one area and that was THE inflection point of my career.

What is the best starting position after I get an econ/finance major?

@massdebater

Shit. I don't know. If you got some connections and are really good you could probably start out at 40 an hour. After a few years 80.

Cool thanks for all the advice. Definitely considering this now, I start cc in 18 weeks. My other option is petroleum engineering.

@Poker_Star
petroleum engineering.

That was very lucrative, probably still is. Finance/econ is even more so if you can find your way to the top. There is a reason so many CEO's major in econ.

be taking time off school after graduating high school
get a part time job and save some money
enroll into my local community college
major is business (finance)
take my first math class, intermediate algebra
been two years since i've took it
can't even remember how to do percentages
struggle through entire course
realize I have to do calculus for this major
know i'm gonna fail that

feelsbadman.jpg I've never been a math person but I was always smart enough to bullshit my way to an A at least in the math subjects back in high school. Now i'm just feel stupid and wonder if I'm putting myself up for failure and is just in denial.

Mechanical Engineer, moving into Aerospace Engineering soon.

imo prospects look really good, most people going into coding and shit now, but within 2030 I expect the aerospace industry to really hit the top, lots to do with new satellite launches to replace obsolete ones, drones, wind energy even. New fighter jets, planes have to be developed, and the aerodynamics are also transferrable to chassis design for new sustainable transport vehicles.

Kaching!
