It's the question that faces every person staring down the job market for the first time: which entry-level job will earn you the most money? You want to find a career that offers plenty of room for advancement, but you also have bills to pay. A recent study
found that some of the highest-paying entry-level jobs include investment banking analysis, data science, hardware engineering, software engineering, and equity research analysis. However, it's less important to take a job that you may or may not care about simply for the money, and more important to know how to negotiate a higher salary for yourself regardless of the position you apply for. Salary negotiation can be tricky, but it's an important skill to master if you want to earn what you deserve for your work. Some of the most important tips
to remember when negotiating before accepting an entry-level position
are basic social skills, such as being a likable candidate. Others are more subtle, like being able to answer the intent of a question instead of the question itself. But one of the most important things to remember is this: a job that makes you happy and fulfilled is more important at the end of the day than a job that makes you miserable, regardless of salary.
