OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
A PayScale.com reports that certain jobs for new graduates have an average starting salary of $50,000.
Top-earning positions include Business Banker, Drill Engineer, Video Game Producer, and Sales Operations Analyst.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
The average starting, two-year salary for new graduates is $35,000, but PayScale.com reports that in many cases, only two years of experience or less is required for higher-paying jobs.
OUR TIME OPINION
By strategically choosing majors, undergraduates can plan to graduate with experience that will qualify them for higher-paying positions. PayScale.com’s report can help us take advantage of the less-than-ideal job market.
