For most millennials, struggling to find high-paying work after graduation is the new normal.

Some post-grads, however, can rake in serious cash if they choose certain entry-level jobs.

Entry-level engineers, in particular, and other high-skilled work can earn up to $95,000 right out of college, according to Glassdoor's annual report on the highest-paying jobs. Glassdoor identified these jobs using annual base salaries as reported by people 25 or younger from January 2018 to December 2018.
