    Graduated last spring in Finance and work at IBM. I'm not making the killer pay, but compared to what I have been use to in college and high school it feels like i'm making tons.

    Re: Whats your major, first job ect.

    Just out of my own personal curiousity, what is the difference between starting teacher pay, and other professional pay? I know teachers start between 20K and 26K, so I'm just wondering.

    Can't spell "geek" without "double e".

    Elec Eng, though I told the ladies I was El Ed ... went a little something like this:

    x: "so whats your major?"
    me: "double E"
    x: "oh ... ummm... engineering huh? (begins scanning crowd)"
    me: "no, El-Ed ... I love kids"
    x: "oh my God! Me too!"
