    I can't wait to live on my own, but I'll probably wait to buy a house instead of renting.

    Not sure? It may all depend on the position and when you get the job. Sometimes it all just depends and how many jobs and experience you have.

    Yeah right ofc but like when I interned in DC I had a lobbyist friend who said their starting salary was just below $50,000 which is not bad. But again it really depends on if I can get the job.

    Who knows. Pays are always changing to, but that sounds like a nice chinch of change.

    Yeah I doubt whatever pay I get is going to be that high at the start but who knows with how high rent in DC is it might be.

    Average salary seems to be around $30K-ish.

    For me, I'm happy I just landed a job that's going for $62K with a pension. Seriously, a pension is like finding a unicorn.

    I only hope something nice like that could happen for me soon. I'm about tired of turning up nothing, but I'm holding out hope!

    Don't give up, dude. I was in your spot for a while too. I was unemployed for almost all of 2016 and I was worried my skills and experience were no longer wanted or relevant to what was in demand. Two years later, different departments were in a heated tug of war for who could get me and I was even offered overtime project hours because they needed me that badly.

    Hope is a weapon against fear. :D

    Ye But in DC rent is like $3000 a month so it’s probably higher up there because of that. And the rent in Arlington, Georgetown, and Baltimore are better but still hefty. $600 to $2000 depending on where you look.

    Yeesh, that's a ton of rent. I remember when I went to college, rent for the apartment I lived in was $800 a month. I can't image rent at $3000 a month - I could barely even live in the $800 month apartment.
