What Will You Be Paid in Your First Job After Graduation?


Starting salary depends on many things, including type, size, and location of the organization and experience of the job candidate.

While the projected average starting salary is $62,553, a new grad choosing to work in the utilities industry is projected to receive an average starting salary of $69,250. That same graduate would find the projected average starting salary for someone who enters finance, insurance, and real estate industries is $64,875. A business graduate in the Northeast is projected to receive an average starting salary of $46,374.
