No full-time job experience? No problem.
This crop of college grads is facing one of the best job markets in decades, with an unemployment rate of just 3.6% as of April, the lowest in roughly 50 years. And thanks to this incredibly competitive job market, more employers are willing to hire college grads with relevant degrees and train them right out of school, even when they don’t have relevant full-time job experience, says Ahu Yildirmaz, co-head of the ADP Research Institute.
Some of these workers can make bank: On Wednesday, job site Glassdoor unveiled its list of the 25 highest-paying entry-level jobs, and there are two where you can rake in $90,000 or more: data scientist ($95,000) and software engineer ($90,000). (That’s compared to a median salary of $35,400 among entry-level roles considered in this report, Glassdoor notes.) To determine this list, the company identified the jobs with the highest median annual base salaries as reported by U.S.-based employees aged 25 or younger on Glassdoor during 2018.
Plus, not only do these two jobs pay well, they also have high levels of job satisfaction among people already in the job, and lots of job openings, says Amanda Stansell, Glassdoor’s senior economic research analyst.
