WalletHub compared 109 entry-level jobs on 11 different metrics: immediate opportunities (starting salary, number of job openings, unemployment rate, and education requirements), growth prospects (projected job growth, income growth potential, on-the-job training, median salary, and median tenure), and hardship (occupational injuries and number of people working over 40 hours).
