For graduates at all levels, the personal-finance website WalletHub compiled a report on 2019’s Best & Worst Entry-Level Jobs as well as accompanying videos.

To take stock of the first-timer employment landscape, WalletHub compared more than 100 different types of entry-level positions based on 13 key metrics. The data set ranges from median starting salary to projected job growth by 2026 to median tenure with employer.

Best vs. Worst

  • Tax attorneys have the highest average starting salary, $97,559, which is 5.9 times higher than that of a college teaching assistant, the job with the lowest at $16,622.
     
  • Employee-relations specialists have the highest income growth potential, 6.4, which is 3.6 times higher than that of a bank teller, the job with the lowest at 1.8.
     
  • Benefits administrators have the longest median tenure with their employers, 6.4 years, which is 2.1 times higher than that of a certified occupational therapist assistant, the job with the shortest at 3.0 years.
     
  • Certified occupational therapist assistants have the highest projected job growth by 2026, 28.9 percent.
     
  • Although web-application developers are among the 10 best entry-level jobs, computer operators have the grimmest job outlook, with 22.8 percent of jobs in the field projected to be cut by 2026.
