Engineering? Accounting? Banking? Etc? Which one is best Career option?
So I'm a senior in college with a double major in computer science and math and I'm trying to decide on a career. Lifetime earning potential is fairly important to me.
So far I've received 2 offers in the 70-80k range as a software engineer in the Boston area. Solid offers, but i do know that software engineers tend to top out at ~120k as individual contributors. I'd have to either join the management ranks or get an "architect" job to get more money, both of these would be 10-15 years out.
So now I'm entertaining other possibilities. As far as lifetime earning potential goes, would it be wiser to bypass engineering and work for a "big 4" accounting firm? Or what about banking or consulting?
