From a different b4

Graduated at two years early. First position paid 110k. Sheer luck, nothing special, 2.5 gpa, a state school, one decent internship, and an overinflated sense of self, which helped with interviewing and networking - the reason I was able to get the job.

I started in oil & gas so my first role was 6 figures. Got laid off 3 years later though when oil crashed so it kind of set expectations unrealistically. I then went and got my MBA and am just slightly higher if I take inflation into account. Mid 100s now.
