Highest-paying jobs for recent college grads
Bachelor's degrees are not the fast-track to big paychecks they once were. But professionals in some fields have a significant head-start in the years immediately following graduation, said Elana Altman, a career editor and contributing writing at Her Campus, a Cambridge-based online magazine for collegiate women."You always hear about law school and medical school, but those are things that take a time and money," Altman said. "These are things you can do to make money right out of college."
Late last year, Altman adapted a list of the top 10 best-paying jobs for recent college graduates originally published by EarnMyDegree.com. Here are the jobs that will let recent graduates pad their bank accounts, as well as projected growth in those fields through 2018 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
