The 10 best college degrees to get a job

What happens when you combine a list of the hottest careers with a list of the highest-paying jobs? Theoretically, you discover the best majors to seek in college.

With college costs skyrocketing, you need some assurances you’ll graduate into a career that’s hiring — and one that will pay you enough to handle the $32,731 in student loans. (Yup, that’s the national average these days, according to the Federal Reserve.)

We cross-referenced two sets of data to figure out how much you’ll earn if you get a job through one of the top 10 degrees for job-seekers.

Initially, this is the lowest paying job on our list. But workers see the highest average raise (58 percent) in the first decade of working. So if you stick it out for a while, odds are you’ll at least get close to $65,754, the average salary for those who’ve been at it for between five and nine years, PayScale reports.

  • Average beginning salary: $41,595
  • Jobs for your degree: Titles range from account executive to marketing director.

No matter what you end up studying, you’re more likely than not to need a student loan to cover the cost of your education. Learning how to face that debt early using free resources like’s Student Loan Education Center can help you save money in the long run, and maybe even retire one day.
