Higher graduate salary and excellent job prospects are just two reasons surveying is a career path secondary students should take note of
According to The Good Education Group, which publishes The Good Careers Guide, surveying has the fourth highest average starting salary at $60,049 compared with the national average of $52,840
Graduate surveyors are also among the most likely to be employed straight out of university, with the third highest employment rate at 78%. It’s difficult to come by a profession with such high demand and job security as surveying.
Good Education Group data manager Ross White said science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) graduates are in high demand because they have specialised and transferable skills and there are less people entering these fields.
If you’re science, maths, engineering or technology inclined, consider a career where you will have an impact on the world while enjoying great pay and job opportunities.
