Earning a six-figure salary might not be as far from reach as you may think.
Entry-level positions for data scientists, product managers, and developers could pay $100,000 or more, according to a new study from Comparably, a website that rates workplace culture and compensation based on self-reported data.In its latest study, Comparably analyzed the salaries of employees in the technology industry with three years of experience or less, which it evaluated from more than 8,000 employee records. The highest salary on the list was for the position of data scientist, which Comparably's report indicates has an average entry-level salary of $113,254.
Comparably's results share some similarities with data published by job search platform Monster, which listed web and software developer positions in its list of the highest-paying entry-level tech jobs.
The findings also underscore the increased emphasis on technical skills over traditional experience in the technology sector. Apple CEO Tim Cook even recently said that about half of the company's US employment last year was made up of people who did not have a four-year degree.
