While single I have had no problem living with near minimum wage . Soon this will change, however, as I am engaged, I wish to have children in the next few years, I find myself needing a new car. If I wish to provide for a family, something else will have to do. Either I'll need to find a higher paying job, work up within my current company, or find two jobs.
This is no complaint. My desire to provide better for a future family is causing me to work harder and thus be a more productive member of society. I am not afraid of working hard for a living in order to move beyond my current pay grade.
Trust me, it all depends on where you live and the line of work you are in. The job market is quite hot in the Bay area, and I've been pinged by NINE different recruiters in the past 2 weeks for the same role. This role is not an unusual one, and I am sure there are many more IT people out there who could fill that position. The company I am working with right now has 3 open positions to fill, development and QA roles. I can't imagine not having a target number, and a ballpark range, and a minimum already in my head when walking into an interview. I've told recruiters up front before they start quizzing me about skills, if the opportunity is not willing to pay a minimum of X, then we're done. I am not going to waste my time interviewing with people if they can't hit the ballpark range.
This is not the right place where to discuss the salary of ours , because it does not matter how much you earn to live , but the question is that someone does good for the life and others cannot find the place and profession to work in , so that is called somebody works hard and someone hesitates.
1 000 000 dollars will be enough :P :P :P hahahaha...I am sure there is nobody on the Earth who would refuse from one million dollar! But if to say frankly, i have not big salary, about 1000 euro every month, but it is not enough for good living here, in Germany :pinch: :pinch: I think 5000 euro will be enough for me to live better and to travel a lot and to buy a good car. If my boyfriend would have 5000 euro and me 5000 euro, we would be very happy and never restrict ourselves from the things we want to buy.... :side: :side: :side:
It`s a very interesting question, but I often think about my salary and the ways that I can her improve)) As Billy said you shoul be carefull with money , it can drive a person distracted.My salary is 3000 euro, and it`s enough to live me with my mother, but I of course will look for another job,i am going to have a real normal family and i have to provide them with everything. I`m would like to travel somewhere, so i have to save up money for my trip .It`s a bad shade of my salary. All in all money is not my life value and I won`t suicide if i don`t rise it in the future :woohoo:
I think that money can't make us happier people, or give us something special. As for me, other people can make us happy. But still money is needed for or life, and it is definitely preferable thing for some people. The best salary for me is the one which will be enough for everything I need and everything I want to buy.
Nobel laureate in Economics Angus Deaton calculated the optimal amount of money that is needed to be happy.
This is stated in the work of the scientist for the year 2010 entitled "High income improves living standards, but not emotional well-being".
According to Deaton, the average family must have annual income of $ 75 thousand to cover your needs to pay for housing and have the opportunity to relax and take care of health.
According to the scientist, if the amount is less or more than specified, it will automatically lead to the emergence of additional problems, and will save a person the chance to get pleasure from life. Thus, not only poverty, but also wealth prevent a person to be happy.
We will remind, this year the Nobel prize in Economics went to an Anglo-American researcher Angus Deaton of Princeton University. Scientist noted for analytical research "consumerism, poverty, and welfare"
It's really hard to say exactly, you know)))) It's the rule of our life, we always want to have a lot but to do little for this)) This is certainly a very tough question. On one side I wouldn’t want to market myself too high, because it happened to me, and I was not considered anymore for this reason. On the other side if I market myself too low, they’ll take me immediately, so I’ll be the lowest paid for the job, which sucks. Honestly, it’s an unfair question. I remember not long ago when the opening came with the salary from the start, so I would apply knowing the salary from the begining.
I never have been a type of dude,who wants to get all the money in the world-and there are a lot of them!I always thought-hey,you have a decent job,your salary is good,it is totally enough to lead a normal life,for you and your family,you have everything you want to eat,drink,all the clothes you want etc.,than what else do you want,man?Be happy with what you've got,everybody's fine near you-life is beautiful!So stop your money run the moment you've realised that you have enough.The problem is-many of us never live that moment,wanting more and more.
I think it is good guestion, and it is asked every time when you want to get new job) And sometimes you really do not know what to say) I think you need just tell them how much you want. The hiring manager has given the recruiter a salary range and they want to know if you are within it. Typically recruiters get % of your first year salary as a fee, which means the more you make the more the recruiting agency does also. The same usually applies to contract jobs as well. Most large companies require all recruiting vendors to have the same fixed percentage markup off your hourly rate, which means the more you make the more they do to. Some contract jobs may not have a fixed markup, which means the recruiter may be able to get a higher hourly markup by paying you a lower hourly rate.
