- It's not how much you make, but if you are truly happy with your current profession. Reason why I am looking to make the switch to nursing.
- FYI, here is my salary. I have BS-AppliedMath, BS-Comp Sci, and MS-Comp Sci.
- Current job (Java software engineer) US$85K/yr . (40 hour week).
- With Hewlett-Packard (before the layoffs) I was working 60+ hours per week travelling all over USA teaching computer science courses to their clients. That paid around US$150K/yr.
- I definitely enjoyed the traveling part of the Hewlett-Packard job. Was fun getting to go to a new place every week or two. But, now I am consigned to the cubicle/box life, which seems to the be the future of my career in the computer industry.
Yeah, it pays the bills. But good God do I feel like one of those caged puppies at the pet store. Can't wait to get out of the cage/box/cubicle.
