So now you’re graduated. Or you’re on track to graduate in, like, five years. So after being a super senior, what the heck are you going to do with the rest of your life?

We just want to say one word to you: plastics.

Yeah, maybe in 1967 [1].

US News and World Report [2] released a report on the best careers for those carrying a bachelor’s degree. And English majors won’t be living in cardboard boxes after all.

The top highest-paying careers are as follows:

bq. 1. Management Consultant – $96,245 – Bachelor’s in Business

bq. 2. Fund Raiser – $78,902 – Bachelor’s in Business

bq. 3. Actuary – $75,062 – Bachelor’s in Accounting

bq. 4. Engineer – $72,156 – Bachelor’s in Engineering

bq. 5. Systems Analyst – $70,438 – Bachelor’s in Computer Science

bq. 6. School Psychologist – $63,029 – Bachelor’s in Psychology

bq. 7. Registered Nurse – $59,046 – Bachelor’s in Nursing

bq. 8. Editor – $52,443 – Bachelor’s in English

bq. 9. Landscape Architect – $49,974 – Bachelor’s in Architecture

Of course, you can earn more being, say, a doctor or a lawyer. But those careers involve more than a bachelor’s. One would hope.

But if you’re pretty much done with school effing you over, that there list is your guide to the top-dollar life of a college grad.

Yeah, only if you could get into Haas.
