Mid level salary + Travel?
#19
As long as you're not being a company man you should be able to advance in income pretty fast.

I know a handful of people who started out at a large company when they graduated and are still there. Maybe at first there was good advancement from the absolute bottom to a rung or two up the ladder. After that, some mid level manager is promising them X thing at Y time just to keep them on the hook. Y time seems to be perpetually delayed and never comes, but you stay on the hook and think you're making a sacrifice for the future.

Personally, I don't like putting all my hopes on something that might be happening two or three years from now.

Unless you're in a field like engineering/medicine or such, the best route to six figures is to aggressively pursue salary increases early on in your career. Job hopping looks bad later on but you can weather it when you're starting out, and in my opinion it doesn't count as a negative if you've got forward motion. Doing this while working at growing organisations can be a huge accelerator, the growth of your employer can trickle down to you if you play your cards right.
