In a few short months, another wave of college graduates will be entering the job market. Chances are, they are already looking and interviewing.

The career site Zippia.com has compiled a list of the top jobs in Pennsylvania for soon-to-be graduates with four-year degrees. The list is based on data provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and considers four criteria:

  • Location - a measure of how common a job is in the state
     
  • Only jobs that require a four-year degree
     
  • Average annual entry-level salary
     
  • Projected growth as an industry over the next 10 years

And in case you’re wondering, Epic Consultant is the Bureau of Labor’s fancy way of describing a computer repair technician.
