  • New grads entering one of the strongest job markets in recent history and starting salaries have risen
  • The average base pay for college grads this year is at the highest level in at least a decade, to $49,785 – that’s 14% higher than 2007 before the start of the recession
  • STEM skills are still rewarded at the highest end of the payscale
  • College graduates over 25 earn twice as much as adults with a high school diploma or some college.
