URL: http://www.earnmydegree.com

In today’s tough economy it’s important to know not only which industries are hiring, but which jobs pay well, when you get out of college.  Some professions are more likely to pay top dollar to get qualified people in the door.  

To help you figure out which jobs pay more, EarnMyDegree.com has put together an easy-to-reference guide of the 11 highest paying jobs straight out of college.  The list can be found at http://www.earnmydegree.com/online-education/learning-center/11-highest-paying-jobs.html.

Topping the list is an investment banker.  According to the Salary Finder on Indeed.com, an investment banker can expect to make about $112,000 a year.  Although the demand for this job might be declining due to the economy, the earning potential is still very high. 

A software developer comes in second place on the list, making about $84,000 a year.  Jobs for software developers are usually easy to come by, but continued education is often a necessity due to the constant changes in technology.  

The good news is that many continuing education classes in software development are available through online colleges or online universities, making it easier to fit education into an already busy schedule. Rounding out the top five highest paying jobs on the EarnMyDegree.com list are actuaries, engineers and network systems administrators.

A job that made the list, which may surprise many people, is a teacher.  This position came in at number 11, with foreign language teachers especially likely to make a decent salary.  In fact, a Spanish language teacher can expect to make $52,000 a year, compared to the average teacher salary, which is about $43,000.

The important thing to remember is that all jobs with high salaries require a college education and to stay competitive you must have a college degree.  In fact, of the 30 fastest growing occupations, 23 require a degree.  Luckily online education makes getting a degree easier than in the past.  By studying at an online college or online university one can take classes at a time that is most convenient for them and from any location.  

To help people find the school that is best for them, EarnMyDegree.com offers resources to connect prospective students with colleges and universities, both online and on-campus.  Established in 2003, EarnMyDegree.com, part of the Prospecting Services Division of EducationDynamics, is a network of leading websites that serve as a one-stop directory for undergraduate and advanced degrees, as well as professional certificates in a variety of fields from business to healthcare to technology.  More than three million students have connected to the higher education programs of their choice through EarnMyDegree.com.
