Hi Mikalya,

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.

Here is a link to a broader career you'd be diving into: "Software Engineer" and it's salary ranges: https://www.glassdoor.com/Salaries/software-engineer-salary-SRCH_KO0,17.htm. Here is a salary link from LinkedIn as well if you want an additional site for research: https://www.linkedin.com/salary/

Thanks,

Kevin

Data provided by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) show that the average wage of computer and information research scientists was $49.59 an hour in May 2011. At this hourly income rate, computer scientists earned $103,160 a year on average, assuming a combined 2,080 hours of work and paid vacation/holidays a year. The median hourly pay of computer scientists was $48.59, which means half of employees in the field earned more than $48.59 an hour and half made less.

Dinesh recommends the following next steps:

Hi Mikayla,

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.
