I know you didn't ask for explicit answers, but I'll do that anyways.Originally Posted by LuckY
I was employed shortly after leaving college (the market sucked, so it took me a couple months to get something in my field). My grades in college were decent, nothing great. My overall was a 3.0 and my major was a little higher than that. And my pay had nothing to do with my grades. I held an internship (read co-op) with the same company all through college. When I got my current job, I was started at the normal starting salary for an incoming engineer. There was no negotiation.
I recently had my 1 year review, where I was given a promotion along with a bump in pay equal to the new position. Again, nothing to do with my schooling, simply based on my performance and my degree.
And as far as what I'm being paid, let's just say it's a little above average for what I do for the community I work in (especially for my age, 24).
