Finding a good-paying job is tough when you’re just entering the market. At the entry level, there’s a strong chance you could be stuck making $15 an hour — or less — and that can be hard to live on in many places.
There are some jobs, though, that pay well, even when you’re the low person on the ladder. Glassdoor analyzed salary reviews left in 2018 from employers in the United States, using those from workers aged 25 and younger.
If you don’t have a lot of experience, you can still get a decent-paying job — as long as you look in the right places. It’s important to realize, too, that entry level doesn’t always mean no education. Some of these jobs prefer those who have a college degree. However, at least you’ll be able to afford your student loan payments with many of these jobs, which isn’t always the case when you’re fresh out of college.
