Entry level finance jobs typically have a solid average beginning offer around $50,000 per year. Although every year the average is dropping by around$1,000; with the economy looking up that should quickly turn around in the upcoming years. Of course with the more experience you have (or less) your offer may change in addition to what firms you may be applying to. In general though if you are qualified and receive an offer it will be somewhere around $50,000 starting out and you most likely will grow from there.

A forensic accounting salary is one of the higher paid starting jobs at around $63,000 a year. Keep in mind though there are plenty of graduates that are applying for these positions but that doesn’t mean they won’t pick you. Some of the qualification that firms are in search for is past experience with a job or internship in the financial sector.

This may include at a bank, accounting firm or even an internship with a CPA. Other qualifications include being a part of financial clubs in college, a solid GPA and possibly experience performing income tax returns for friends and family.
