With graduation but a few weeks away, you’re probably excited to get your first job, earn your first pay check, and be rich, rich, rich! For that last bit to happen, however, you need to be in the right industry. According to a recent study conducted by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), among the top 10 highest paying jobs in the country right now are “those occupations in aviation, banking and finance, business process outsourcing, creative industries, cyber services, manufacturing, and mining.”

“An art director, for example, which is under creative industries, can receive a corresponding median salary of P69,286 a month, while a geologist's salary is P64,889 a month on the average," says DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz. DOLE also reveals that both an aircraft navigator and a flight engineer could receive as high as P57,789 per month, while a computer programmer could get a paycheck for as high as P43,573 per month.

After seeing those numbers, we bet you're raring to get to work now! For the best shot at your dream job, check out our articles on acing your job interview and dressing for an appointment.
