The salary, of course, is an important element to consider. Jobstreet released their latest report on the top 10 specializations with highest paying first salaries for those new in the workforce Tuesday, March 24.
According to the report, the best paying entry jobs are in the IT industry, with five of the top ten specializations providing the highest salaries.
