Tfw you read stories from american university students and their excellent job...
You must have selective attention if you didn't also notice the 10's of thousands of dollars in loan debt we have to get into to have a chance at the prospects and wages.
You sound like such a whiney little bitch.
I should really be more appreciative
able to save $10k/year because NY/NJ is expensive as fuck
Great, when I'm 30 I'll finally be out of my indentured servitude!
Sucks to be you, breh
bragging on a mongolian basket weaving forum
whatever you've gotta do man
All a lie my nigger. The professors shill up the starting wage to get you to gibs them tuition.
Actually having a job at the end of uni is more rare than common, even for decent majors, unless you majorly interned and did side jobs to have some xp, HR loves dat xp. But the profs don't tell you how important the internships and side jobs are, they lead you to believe you walk out the door and someone runs up with a huge check.
But I can't really complain, since there are jobs that make okay money, just not crazy money and them running you down to bang on your door like the unis tell you. Not like I'm gonna ever want for work.
Implying you make better.
I think I only have like 35/40k debt, and I had 10k left over as float money at the end of uni so that's more like 25/30k really. I don't know how but I did it.
So I'm more like 40k starting, 30k debt. Not bad.
$2k frivolous CC debt
live in Texas
Yes and everything is expensive and everything has a tax.
except now you owe your parents
What were you studying and what are you doing now?
Senpai, I got friends in the -hundreds-. American education can be really good if you get a low cost degree in a relevant field, but people will line up outside your door to lend you unlimited monies to pursue the most worthless rag you can imagine.
make 30k out of college
live at home saving 1200 and investing 100 monthly
still trying to get a promotion at work, still trying to make more from investing
will i ever be satisfied?
Working environment in America is fucking hostile and cruel. In my workplace it's not really okay to be "straight" and talking about girls is a guaranty of getting fired.
Then again, grass is always greener on the other side.
No one wants to be an American today. People want to be Norwegian, Swiss, Swedish, French. Americans are entirely fucked and they will have less prospects in life than generic 3rd worlders. They all know that by now though.
after taxes and other holdbacks, how much do you take in cash ever month ? is it like $4,500 ?
Kek, I'm French and want to be a burger and leave this shithole.
literally no one wants to be french nowadays, the golden time was 10-15 years ago , same for sweden
swiss, norwegian however I agree
tfw listen to american tech people and they fetishize youth beyond even the likes of the Japanese
you're not 15 years old, a technical genius, who'll work for a subsistence wage in hopes of making it as a millionaire in the startup culture?
It's extra funny when you listen to them basically admit that they aren't going to hire specialists "because that's old technology!" (i.e. it wasn't made internally by the same company in the last two years) or anyone above the age of 30 if they can help it.
In Canada, it's 3800 after tax
believing I would lie about a paltry 70k starting wage.
All these normie haters, I'm just a CS major. Got job offers like you wouldn't believe, and I only got a 2.7 gpa.
You fuckers are dumb.
their excellent job prospects and starting wage
let me tell you about h1b1s. they are replacing us because they are cheaper and cant complain. who cares if they dont speak english, that makes them more productive.
you are losing your opportunity OP third world proffesional slaves are in high demand right now.
You mean the countries with actual working border controls? Weird how that works. When you let every Ahmed, Samil, and Mukumba in your country suddenly no one wants to be there...weird...
Ausfag here, wish I was American
