Salary vs. Age Range

Hi guys, I'm just wondering what age people on this app generally are and what their pay is (if that's allowed?). The topic of salary is so taboo in person for some reason and I don't understand why particularly, I'd prefer transparency but in our culture as it is that just isn't a thing.

I only graduated last year and I'm definitely doing much better than friends and those around me but I definitely want to do better. I just have no source of comparison currently as I want to do better than the people I'm around which is why I figured I'd ask on here. Any info would be appreciated. I'm 24 and make $60K and would ideally like to be at $80K - $100K by 26-28. Statistics say that the average 36 year old makes $80-100K and I'd really like to pass that earlier. Has anyone hit that or more?

Thanks in advance.

      I'm currently trying to get into tech with my background as an Industrial Designer, trying to find the stepping stones by grabbing other product design gigs which is what I do currently at L'Oreal, albeit at a very entry level.

    • Please understand those people are in Tech. That's not realistic for any other industries!

      Understandable, tech is the industry I'd ideally like to be in but that does make sense. Thank you!

    • And to be clear Bay Area is the highest due to high COL so keep that in mind. Not even LA or NYC pays as high.

      COL is definitely what I was wondering about. I live on the east coast so my salary isn't super high yet but my COL isn't exorbitant either

    • 👍🏻 for example a salary in Bay Area might be $315k but that salary in LA or NY might be $200-250k

      OP
      Product Designer, as in physical products. Smartphones and other electronics are a personal passion of mine, ideally would like to be part of a team that develops things like the Google Pixel, Google home mini and similar products IOT products. Industrial Design is my background but I'm also currently trying to develop my skills in UI/UX design as well to have knowledge in that area additionally.

    The TC here is not representative of most of America. Also a lot of folks are in the Bay Area and you need every bit of that.

    How can the average 36 year old make 80-100k when the national household income is around 50k. Or do you mean just in engineering?
