Graduates working in automobile electric motor design are expected to enjoy the highest starting salaries this year – a median $900 – according to a new salary guide.
But for management trainees, the median salary suggested by the guild is $469 this year, $58 less than that of 2009. But the low and high-end salaries should be almost the same as last year.
