Entry-level jobs can be an important step in your career, giving you the skills and training you need to begin to move to more advanced positions. While you may have assumed that these jobs sacrifice earnings in exchange for future opportunities for growth, there are plenty of fields where entry-level employees can still earn a good salary while learning on the job.

"This list can be used to provide direction for young job seekers trying to align their skills and passions with a high paying starting role," says Amanda Stansell, Glassdoor Economic Research Analyst. "The majority of these entry-level jobs are in the STEM field and require strong technical skills. Young students interested in these types of roles should start thinking about how they can prepare for these STEM emphases in their educations, whether that be informal academic settings or through alternative skill-building courses such as boot camps."
