A lot of my friends recently graduated with engineering degrees. Some have
had trouble finding a job but most have found a job. I think the $30K+
figure Jeff quoted is pretty representative. My friends think I am crazy
to be in a profession where I have to spend 6 years in school to come out
and maybe not be able to even make ends meet (I also have loan payments -
I put myself through school with no help from Mommy and Daddy). But I love
this field and I hope I can stay in it.
