The Law graduates remains to be the best-paid among the graduates. It is followed by those in the industry of Public Relations or Communications, and Journalist or Editors falls on the third spot. This just shows that the highest paid are more aligned toward content and communication-related jobs.

Meanwhile for the K-12 graduate, employers who are open in accommodating them are in the following industries: BPO, Manufacturing, Professional Services, Retail, and Machinery & Equipment. For entry-level jobs, K-12 graduates can opt for: Administrative, Customer Services, and Sales & Marketing.

There are indeed employers that are receptive to hiring them, but they have to contend with two factors: One, that not all employers are accepting K-12 graduates as of the moment and two, they will have to compete woth fresh college graduates, which employers may favor more, for the same jobs they are eyeing, said Philip Gioca, Country Manager of JobStreet.com.

In terms of the K-12 graduates salary, they can still find themselves sufficiently paid as 50% of the employers who participated in the JobStreet.com's survey are willing to pay K-12 graduates with more than minimum wage.
