College grads' salary expectations overblown?
from Recruiting Trends
From Feb. 28
: Depending on their major, college students may be in for a rude surprise when it comes to their starting salary post-graduation. The 2017 Yello Collegiate Survey — Undergraduate Expectations finds that 65 percent of college students expect to make more than $60,000 as an entry-level salary. However, the Winter 2017 Salary Survey report from the National Association of Colleges and Employers finds that while employers anticipate boosting their average starting salaries for most majors this year, those for all but a few STEM majors are projected to average below $60,000 — in some cases, well below that number.
