Dr. White's Abnormal Psychology Class- Friday, Oct. 29th-Room 114 HH-9 am and 10 am classes




Activity-How much is my degree worth?  Write down these items:
-The job you want
-The amount of education you are willing to undertake
-The salary you think you will acquire with your first job
-The job location
-Type of apartment (2 bedroom 2 bath, etc.)
-The work schedule you want (8-5/7-3, etc.)
-What specific resources are you going to use to find that job

●  Do a monthly budget of cost:
1.  Figure out your income and expenses
2.  Monthly Income:
Look at your salary and multiple it by .65.  Take this number and divide it by 12.  This will give you your monthly income.
-Any part-time work; Bonus, etc. (divide by 12)
*Add the salary and any other  income together and that gives you your monthly income

3.  Monthly Expenses:

-examples include rent, utilities, car payment, school loans, credit cards, cell phone, social fund, etc.

4. Net Monthly Total:
-subtract your monthly expense total from your monthly income total and that gives you your monthly net total  (must be positive)

Is this what you thought it would be?

Example-$40000 X .65 = $26000
