High school is not a bad time to start figuring out “what you want to be when you grow up”.  Here’s some early career advice for high schoolers.

Kids, as you head back to school and consider what college degree is right – I’ve got the list of majors that guarantee a big paycheck when you graduate.

Science as a major can lead to jobs in the fields of chemistry or human biology. There’s 85,000 jobs in the U.S. right now tied to this major. Chemist, pharmacist, surgeon, or dentist. All of these jobs pay on average between $73,000 – up to $230,000 per year. 

There are 25 different types of engineers including petroleum, software, electrical, bio medical and mechanical. The latter – great if you want to build things. Think bridges and dams, buildings, etc. Salaries range from $80,000 to $130,000.

Statistics degrees is another way to study and work in the field of big data. Actuaries, mathematicians, economists, and statisticians can make anywhere from $75,000 to $101,000 a year.

Finally, if you are unsure about specifics, a solid business degree is always a good idea. Executives, economists, consultants, and accountants all make between $63,000 and $100,000 right out of school.
