What Can I Do with My Degree?

Career Finder is designed to support individuals exploring different career opportunities. The tool reports on which careers people choose based on their education and how much they earn in those positions. We use data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics to explore the most popular, highest earning, and fastest-growing occupations for each college major. Together, these components provide students and graduates with a clear picture of how they can use their degree to advance their career at any point in their educational journey.

Salaries for certain professions will vary from major to major because Career Finder is informed by the real, reported salaries of individuals who hold specific degrees. For example, the salary of a software developer with a degree in computer science differs from that of a software developer with a degree in mathematics. Whether you're applying to colleges or are a recent graduate, GradReports' Career Finder tool can help you better understand the landscape of available professional opportunities.
