Occupations by Salary and Expected Growth

When planning for a career, the level of passion and “fit” one feels for a certain profession is infinitely more important than the sheer potential for monetary gain. Still, when a teen sets out on an educational journey, they are, sometimes unknowingly, making decisions that can have a long-term financial impact on their lives. For example, taking on massive student loans when you desire to enter a lower-paying field can be a set-up for having your dreams deterred down the road.

To get in the proper higher education consumer mindset, we believe that teens and parents should digest all of the available data related to careers as it connects to one's postsecondary pathway. Toward that aim, our Occupations by Salary and Expected Growth table offers salary data, expected job growth over the next decade, and the type of degree required for entry for over 150 of the most popular professions. All data was collected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the government’s premier source of career-related data and trends.

*The statistics listed below were collected on April 10, 2021 and are current as of that date.
