College Students Salary Expectations After Graduation
Women expect to earn 0.5% less than men with similar degrees right out of college, the survey also found.
Nearly $104,000. That's how much college students expect their annual salary will be a year after graduating, according to a survey done by Real Estate Witch.
That's almost double what the average college graduate salary is today, which is around $55,000.
But the gap between expectations and reality hasn't always been like this.
Here's a comparison:
Between the recent survey, and one done in 2019, the expected salary a few years ago was roughly $58,000. Compared to the actual average of $47,000.
Paul McDonald, Senior Executive Director for the global talent solutions firm called Robert Half, talks to Newsy about the reason for such a large gap between what students are expecting, versus what the kind of offers they may ultimately get.
