I would be surprised to learn that market research pays well.

I don't think it pays nearly as well as law / medicine / banking. I'd expect to enter at $50-60K. But I think I would enjoy it and think I could get into it easily, so it has those kinds of things going for it. And it doesn't require school beforehand (like law and medicine).

Hi Peter,

I was curious to see if you ended up making a decision about your career? I recently graduated from college and am in the same boat as you, so would love to know what you chose.
