Top Ten Best-Paying Jobs For College Graduates

This year is tough for college graduates looking to enter the job market. Even more than last year: a study shows a 1.7 percent decline in the salaries offered for entry-level positions when compared with the same time last year. 2010 college grads can expect an average offer of $47,673, compared with $48,515 in 2009.

However there are still careers where the median starting salary is above the average. Let’s review the top ten jobs that offer the highest starting pay:

1. Engineering (median starting salary $53,400)

Engineers use math and science to develop solutions to technical problems. There are many specialties, including industrial engineers, aerospace, and biomedical. A steady growth is expected in this field.

2. Construction, Trades and Labor (median starting salary $51,100)

Most graduates with bachelor’s degrees will find positions in project and first-line management or inspection. Inspectors will experience faster than average job growth as concern for public safety continues to increase.

3. Energy, Oil and Gas (median starting salary: $50,900)

As the country continues to search for efficient and economical solutions to its energy needs, this industry will continue to grow. There are also various professions including scientists, miners, technicians. Many of them can be dangerous and the hazardous positions often command the highest salaries.

4. Information Technology and Telecommunications (median starting salary $46,000)

Such professions as systems analysts, software engineers, and support specialists are expected to see above-average growth. Most companies continue to rely upon these specialists to keep systems up to date with ever-changing technology and software.

5. Biotechnology and Pharmaceuticals (median starting salary $43,900)

Scientists, researchers and technicians develop medicinal and health-related products to cure and treat illnesses and diseases. The best prospects are for scientists with doctoral degrees, but bachelor’s degree could be a good start for continuing in this field.

6. Manufacturing (median starting salary $42,700)

Graduates with bachelor’s degree will work as line managers, project and plant managers. However a decline is expected in the number of production management jobs in response to the increased automation of factory systems.

7. Insurance (median starting salary $40,800)

Positions for recent grads in this sector are insurance claims adjusters, underwriters and auditors. Even though demand for insurance is expected to increase, employment opportunities will not be growing at the same pace, as customers increasingly rely on the Internet.

8. Government, Military and Civil Service (median starting salary $40,300)

The U.S. government is the nation’s largest employer that has more than 2 million civilian employees. Federal jobs are expected to increase by 10% in the next 10 years, with the most substantial openings in the armed services as a result of potential new military fronts and an increase in the number of active duty personnel needed.

9. Business and Finance (median starting salary $40,200)

This field occupations include accountants, financial analysts, financial advisors, and loan officers. Competition will remain high, particularly in entry-level positions, but financial analysts should experience fast-paced job growth in the coming years.

10. Warehouse and Logistics (median starting salary $39,600)

Managing the storage of products across the country, an increasing number of these professionals have postsecondary degrees.
