Home to a large number of TCU alums, Dallas, Texas is by far the most attractive city for these former students. Boston, Mass. is also a common destination for TCU grads and offers the best pay with a median salary of about $115K.

Competency in Project Management, Account Management, and Content Management also warrants excellent remuneration.

Just two-fifths of alumni enjoy paid vacation and merely one-tenth of alumni get paid sick time.
