This Infographic Shows What Atypical Jobs Pay College Grads Well and What Cities are Affordable
For many recent and impending grads, the value of their college degree directly relates to how it helps them secure a job after they’ve graduated.
Many students think they have to follow a traditional career path by becoming a doctor, lawyer, or journalist, to name a few. Yet with student debt loads continuing to rise, college students could consider more “outside of the box” career paths that would enable them to repay what could be a daunting debt burden. This is particularly important given the state of the U.S. job market, which has failed to return to normal levels in the five years since the recession officially ended.
This infographic explores potentially lucrative and not-very-common career paths available to college graduates. It also utilizes rankings and data compiled by Complex Magazine to highlight affordable, non-major U.S. cities. Watch out Spokane, it looks like more college grads might be headed your way to become cartographers.
