Assuming I will use it, I have no idea what it will be. Due to the nature of the career that I am pursuing I will never ask how much I will make before taking a position. I simply do not wish for money to be my motivation. In the years that I have considered becoming a pastor I have never once looked up to see what their average income might be.

My education relates in no way to my job.

If I end up going warrant officer which is turning into a very real possibility then I'll make acceptable money. As of right now I'm pretty sure I'm near the poverty line.

Thankfully it's earning me a lot more than what I spent there.

Average 50k per year.

That's good enough for me.

50-70k for IT, but I'm doubting if I will pursue this field at all

When I finish my studies in some years I will have a degree in CS and I have no idea what an average job concerning computers or programming pays yearly or monthly.

I wasn't aware that one could quantify knowledge and perspective in monetary terms.

My brother is a part time assistant music director and worship leader at his church and he makes more than 20 an hour. It's a medium size church. I think they try to keep pay somewhat competitive if they can afford it to keep talent and important staff around. I know at many churches housing is provided for the pastors.

I have no degree only certs which put me into the six figures.

Currently 45k-50k sans degree. If I ever go back and finish, then 75k-100k.

I've always wondered about the jobs people do here but I've wondered if it was too nosey. Currently with my grades I have no idea what payment I get, still need a job first. Also degrees are really inconsistent when it comes to the job field so don't know.

only counting the biology degree that I just earned, starting salary around 40k and mid career salary around 75k, but I'm going to PA school so starting about 80k and top out around 110k

Plenty. I graduated with Software Engineering, had an internship at a major corporation and was hired for my current job 3 months before I graduated.
