Dave’s Answer

There aren't a lot of guarantees in life. That said, there are some key things you can do to improve your opportunities. I have always recommended that people start their career with a well known, respected brand in their industry. It's a great foundation. They typically provide excellent training, and looks great on a resume if you have worked for one of the top companies in your field. Also, if you have the opportunity to work with people you know, who are well established in their roles, it can be a great way to get started with a high trust factor.

Rachel’s Answer

Your success largely depends on your dedication to working hard and your eagerness to learn. Remember, there are no guarantees in life, but with determination and a willingness to continually grow, you have a great shot at becoming a high earner. Exploring various regions of the country may influence salary levels, but be mindful of the potential increase in living expenses, such as rent, housing costs, gas, and groceries.

To get started, research different companies you're familiar with and their average salary ranges. Then, investigate the opinions of current and former employees regarding work-life balance and overall corporate culture. Glassdoor is a helpful resource for this, but there are many others available. Focus on building your resume and gaining experience, while keeping in mind that a six-figure salary may not be immediately attainable at the beginning of your career.

Also, consider that a higher income might lead to a significant shift in work-life balance, possibly requiring more work and less personal time. This isn't always the case, but it's essential to be aware of these factors. Wishing you the very best in your journey!

Mohammed’s Answer

Hello Jessica!

I'm glad you're taking initiative and asking about your future. When it comes to salary, there are a lot of factors involved. In the business industry, your experience and certifications matter. Therefore, if you spend some time looking into certification during the earlier years of your career, you can jumpstart your career a bit when it comes to pay.

Of course, as you advance in your career, your compensation will also increase. As others have said, there are no guarantees to what you'll be compensated. However, you can better your chances with early initiatives during college, building your resume with work experience and studying for relevant certifications.

I hope this helps, good luck!

Sophie’s Answer

In any workplace or organization, numerous individuals earn varying salaries. You may begin in a junior position and advance by taking on new roles and responsibilities within the same company, or you might switch companies and aim for higher pay with each transition.

One helpful strategy is to research starting salaries for various jobs and industries. However, be cautious with the term "guaranteed," as what one person considers well-paid may not be the same for another. Additionally, salaries can greatly differ based on location.

It's essential to consider your needs, such as your preferred work location, willingness to travel for work, and desired job responsibilities. Strive for a balance between your aspirations and what the job can offer in return. For many, it's crucial to find a fulfilling job that also provides a good income.

Best of luck on your journey of exploration!

Aneesa’s Answer

Hi Jessica

I would say that it would help to start at the lower rungs of a ladder so that you have the opportunity to learn what that particular business is all about. The more you know, the more confident you become. The growing confidence allows you to move higher up the ladder. You would become the go-to-person in the business.

As you move up, your income might become higher. But like one of the responses above, the higher the salary would also mean higher responsibilities, which might affect the work-life balance. Getting a comfortable income but with a high level of work satisfaction is better for a better work-life balance as well as for a good mental life.

All the best!

Leyla’s Answer

Hi Jessica! I would recommend researching the highest-paid majors at the business faculty at your University to give you a little bit of direction. But, what you decide to study is only one part of getting your ideal salary. You also should dedicate time to networking, and attending events where you can make connections. As you grow your network, your opportunities will grow too! Good luck!

Zoe’s Answer

There is no type of "Guarantee" of anything in your life. But there are many ways to increase your chance of being a winner in business field. The 2 key points I found throughout my career are:
1) be committed to your career and try your best.
2) if you truly dont like your job/boss/coworker/enviroment and there is absolutely no way to change them, please think about plan B right away. Do not waste your precious life.

Wish you all the best!

Travis’s Answer

You may find some people that are very successful are very good at one or two things. They don't spread themselves too thin and become experts in their respective areas.

If you can find a solution to a challenging problem that many people have, you could become an expert in that area and charge your fee accordingly.

There's no guaranteed way to achieve this, other than trying hard and failing fast (if it's not working, stop doing it and try something different).

Jennifer’s Answer

Hey Jessica,

You've asked a fantastic question that we should all strive to find the best answer to. There are probably multiple ways to land a well-paying job in business, and I'd like to add to what others have mentioned by saying that interviews go both ways.

Even though you're the one seeking a job, remember to also evaluate the company you're applying to and develop your own method for comparing them. Companies can differ a lot, so it might be tricky to pinpoint a "well-paying job" if you're not ready. For instance, some positions might give you a higher salary without any extra perks, while others could provide a lower salary along with benefits like paid time off, healthcare, discounts, and more.

Be sure to know what matters most to you, or else you might not recognize the well-paying job that's perfect for you. Best of luck!

Jess’s Answer

Hi Jessica,

There are a few things you can do to maximize your chances of getting a job in business that pays well:

1. Obtain higher education if possible. A degree in business or economics helps increase credibility and prepares you well for jobs in the business field after graduation.

2. Obtain a certification - See what subset of business interests you most and study for a professional certification.

3. Use Glassdoor/similar sites when interviewing to gauge what the average salary is for the level/position you are applying for.

4. Work at an internship/externship/part-time job to gain industry experience. This will also help you network with others in your industry.

Jake’s Answer

1. There is the option of entrepreneurship. It is risky, but if you have an idea and can execute, the earnings are limitless!
2. Another option would be to go to college and get a degree in business and accounting. While in college, finding your accounting and finance clubs will introduce you to likeminded people and professionals. These clubs will also have career fairs allowing you to reconnect with professionals you already met at club meetings. Overall, companies need business students, and this is one avenue to get into the industry.

Hope’s Answer

Hi Jessica,

As technology is ever-changing, the landscape of high demand jobs is also ever-changing. However, identifying what those high demand jobs will be helpful to be on the path for a well-paying job.

For example, of the past few years Supply Chain roles have been in high demand, creating an influx of jobs and positions related to supply chain management. Seeking a career in an area of business that is currently in high demand will enable more jobs in that space, that may result in "well-paying" roles. Where there is more demand, there is a higher chance companies will pay more for what is in demand.

Hope this helps!
