So you’re about to graduate, you’re about to have a brand new shiny Communication degree, and you’re ready to fully spread your wings and leave. If you’re looking to move away, find a nice big city, and become  the communication professional you’ve always dreamed, then this blog post may be a good read for you. Now I’m not saying every Communication major needs to take off and leave for a big city (that isn’t my plan at all). I am saying I know the demographic of communication majors, and I know the common dream plan throughout. chicago

This is all according to, whom I feel really know what they’re talking about, I’m just here to share the information again hopefully just as informatively, but maybe a little more entertainingly. This list is also focused just on the Marketing job opportunities across the country, because the options with a Communication degree is close to endless, so I needed to pick one focus for this post. These salaries are as of March of 2016, and are based on top positions within companies (I like to dream big when motivating myself).
