Top Paying Jobs for the Class of 2011

A reader writes….

Hi Anita,

I am graduating from college in a couple of weeks with a degree in Computer Science.  While I know it’s a little “late” to switch majors, I was wondering what type of pay range I may be able to anticipate with this background.  Any input?

Dear “Bill Gates,” (he he!)

Since so many people will be graduating from college in just a few weeks, I thought it would be helpful to share an article I found from my friends at CareerBuilder that addresses the “Top Paying Jobs for the Class of 2011.”  While pay scales will definitely vary (depending on the size of the business, the scope of the job, location, skill requirements, etc), it looks like you’ll have a lot of potential with a degree in Computer Science! 

For those of you (like me) who stayed away from computers or science labs –and never stepped foot in an engineering class…  there’s still hope for decent wages!  Take a look at CareerBuilder’s list, and then be sure to review some of my previous blog posts for handy interview and résumé tips to help along the way!

Congratulations Grads!
