Whether you are just entering the IT workplace as a college graduate or are still deciding on a major, knowing which occupations pay the best and are the most sought-after is crucial to making an informed decision.

The April 2013 Salary Survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) looks at the starting salaries for graduates who have a degree in specific areas of study.

The results of this survey come from data gathered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Census Bureau and a master data set developed by Job Search Intelligence, a compensation measuring firm. This report offers the most recent earnings data from NACE.
