Here are the highest-paying jobs for 2019 graduates


Are you in college or perhaps a recent graduate? When thinking about job opportunities, no doubt you want to make as much money as possible.

Jobs site Glassdoor has a new report that shows the highest-paying jobs available right now for 2019 graduates. While there was some talk late last year of an imminent recession, robust employment numbers have shown 2019 to be a great one for job-seekers so far.

Here are the highest-paying jobs for new graduates

Even if you’re fresh out of school or perhaps looking for an internship, job prospects are rosy. Entry-level workers shouldn’t have much of a problem finding work, according to Glassdoor.

Are you good with crunching numbers? Data scientists are in such a demand that they are #1 on the list of top wage earners in Glassdoor’s study.

In fact, all of the top 10 jobs are in the tech sector. Keep in mind, that doesn’t mean these occupations are exclusively at tech companies. Let’s check out the list:
