Graduate Starting Salaries in Regional Australia

Graphic: Sydney Morning Herald, graduate starting salaries.

I was interested to learn from the Graduate Careers Australia annual survey of Australian graduates that new graduates employed in regional areas earn on average $2,000 more than those in the capital cities ($42,000 as compared to $40,000).

Salaries in regional areas were considerably higher in earth sciences (by $15,000), optometry ($11,500), physical sciences ($5,000) architecture and building ($4,500) and engineering ($4,000).

Salaries in regional areas were lower in dentistry (by $3,000), economics and business ($4,000) and accounting ($3,000).
