In today’s competitive economic conditions, it’s important for students planning on attending college – both recent high school graduates and returning adult students – to create an employment plan that links their education plans with their career goals. Part of this plan should incorporate salary and employment expectations so students know exactly how they will fit into the global economy.

We have created a salary guide for 30 popular careers that gives prospective students a broad picture of job options based on education. Each job includes salary number for all 50 states and 20 of the major metropolitan areas in the U.S. While not every occupation is listed, this salary guide should give you a wide cross-section of the job market.

A wide variety of entry- and mid-level jobs are included in our salary guide, along with a few high-end positions.

A wide variety of entry- and mid-level jobs are included in our salary guide, along with a few high-end positions. All of these occupations require some type of post-secondary education – whether a certificate program, an associate’s degree, a bachelor’s degree or graduate education.

The salary numbers you find in our guide are statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics May 2011 National Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates. Salary figures are averages, based on numbers reported to the U.S. Department of Labor.

It’s important to remember that these salaries are averages. Some salaries in the field will be lower than the average and some will be higher. Also, these salaries do not necessarily represent the salary number you would get if the job is your first job out of school. It’s also important to note that management jobs such as Health Care Administrator and Education Administrator often require multiple years of experience.
