Graduated with a BEng in 2014. It took a job change to pass 100k, and I think job hopping is the easiest way to get there. It was very hard to justify an compensation increase with my old employer. My old job was much more relaxing than my new job, so I might be looking to switch companies again and take a slight paycut if required.

2013 - $46K (internship)
2014 - $73K (hired back fulltime)
2015 - $73K
2016 - $76K
2017 - $117K (job change)
2018 - $126K
What engineering? Computer or software? Thats starting pay is high if its not computer/software engineer title.

Yeah the BEng was in Biomedical Engineering and the jobs are in software. 2013 - 2015 is software QA, and 2016 - present is software developer.

Wouldn’t have thought people in biomed were getting lucrative software developer jobs. Nice work.
