Income uncertainty

Pharmacy has maintained its position at the bottom of the graduate pay scale, a new survey claims.

The latest Graduate Careers Australia survey finds pharmacy placed at equal 22nd (and last) on the list of median starting salaries for bachelor degree graduates in 2014.

Pharmacists were equal with art & design graduate on earning an average starting salary of $40,000. Those working in a public health setting earned higher than those in an industry or commercial setting ($44k vs $39k)
