It is possible to graduate from high school early as long as you have enough math/english/"social science" etc. credits.

Anyways, I work for the US Air Force as a civilian food service worker (WG-03). It's just my summer job betwixt my high school grades, and it currently fetches me $10.50 an hour. Pretty good, but I can only have the job for 9 weeks before I go back to school...

In Canada, graduating at 17 is not uncommon.

I know how to quote, it's not difficult, I'm just used to GameFAQs quoting. Sorry for...upsetting you, I guess :?

Anyway, I attend a parochial school, and it's pretty damned difficult to get all the credits in before Senior year. I don't even think it can happen at the public school, either. That, or the kids there lack the motivation :-P

I actually started homeschooled, and started early enough to graduate last year. When I went into public school, they bumped me back from fourth grade to third grade so that I would be able to better fit in.

I'm 22, and i work as a postman/mailman what ever you wanna call it :p And currently in college towards becoming a math teacher. The postman job pays me roughly €9 an hour wich is pretty nice seeing as it tops the the minimum wage for my age by alot :) But am currently in the process of rethinking my life. And i might aswell end up as an airtraffic controller, i allready passed the first 2 interviews, only the 3rd is left and i become learning airtraffic controller earning €22,000 a year and when i'm done, €45,000 a year and when i am good! then it can go up to €100,000 a year excluding bonusses. Money isnt all that important, but in holland right now, iots best to be earning some more cause there are some strange times commin up.

I'm the system admin for a credit card company that sells, programs, maintains, and does tech support for credit card machines.  It's pretty enjoyable, and the people I work with are great.  Plus they give me a lot of money because I know more about computers than most -if not all- of them.   :-D

Bah... I started work just a month before the company's yearly performance review, hence I got none, hence no salary increase, hence I'm actually working at last year's salary level [for new employees], which means that I might get permanently stuck one year behind on my salary development. :( In contrast, the people who started work one month later than me have higher salary than me, and will probably remain that way... Grr!  :x :-P

That sounds pretty unfair to me. And perhaps even illegal. But is probably isn't.

Thing is, people who started one month after you now get a higher salary, because there were performance reviews before they started at your company. Then, that would mean salaries have been raised throughout your entire firm, otherwise they'd be earning the same amount as you do. And that would logically lead to the conclusion that you should get a raise too, right?

Hmm, come think of it. You've probably signed a contract for a certain salary. That would explain, otherwise I don't understand. But that could be my ignorance.

I turn 19 in about 2 weeks.

I'm an IT Specialist. I repair computer hardware and solve software and hardware issues with them.

So. My computer is.. shall we say. Unique.

Hehe. =)

I also do a bit of charity work.

I'm also a graphic and web designer. Forgot to mention that.

What's most annoying is there's this other guy at work who does the same job as me but because he has a Masters degree and I finished after my undergraduate degree he gets way more money than me. Yet we do exactly the same thing. :@
