Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Students who graduate college in 2018 won't see a big pay check in their first jobs.

A survey from consulting firm Korn Ferry finds grads with a bachelor's degree will earn an average of just over $50,000 annually.

People in science, technology, engineering and math-related fields will earn more than that average.

Where a person lives can also play a part.

Starting salaries in San Francisco are an average of $63,000, while entry-level employees in Atlanta earn around $49,000.
