I have a few friends who just graduated with a BS in Computer science and their starting offers were around 110K a year in Silicon Vally (San Jose) CA. They are working for big software companies and in the same time they get stock options. There's a huge demand for computer related majors such as software engineering and computer engineering and even information systems (business majors rout). I would recommend you look into the companies and towns you want to work in. And search through websites that Kevin recommended.

It definitely varies from industry to industry and your location. In North Carolina, most people out of college should be able to make at least $60k which amounts to roughly $29/hr. I recommend you take a look at Glassdoor or Linkedin and explore from there since there are many industries that students from the computer science field can go into.
