QA Tester roles can also be attractive, with entry level ranging from minimum wage up through 40k or so annually. Training requirements vary widely based upon just WHAT is being tested, but for recent graduates in the IT field this can be a foot-in-the-door route to otherwise crowded departments. Senior QA Test people willing to train in ITIL/ITSM (certifications help!), Project Management (PMP certification), or certain application suites (SAP, Yardi, SAS, etc.) can easily pull in 80K+ in annual salary.
