Standing before my internship and the last part of my education I'm starting to have a look at the wages and it's turning my head upside down. One wage statistics site shows one wage range while others show a completely. Not to mention the part where you have to somehow estimate how good you actually are. How does one do that?
How does one measure how skilled one is compared to others with nothing to measure against? Against my classmates? But how are they compared to others? And how do I prove my worth?
I think I've arrived at a number I think is reasonable but based on what? I've settled for the strategy that I'll try to aim for that number but I'll accept whatever I get offered. Having a job is more important than worrying about selling myself short.
