Salary charts & Projection tool
Some quick background, I am putting together a non-profit whose goal is to provide objective, rational career guidance to high school/college students, with the aim to solve what I see as a pretty big problem in the American educational system: our current career guidance is more focused on how to get a job on your chosen field, rather than what field should you choose in the first place?
Mid-ranged goals involve setting up programs where students can “shadow” people who work in a field they are interested in so that they can see what those types of jobs actually entail. Short-term, the goal is to put together some informational resources that students can use to help guide their decision a little more rationally.
One of these information resources is a database that uses data pulled from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, to tell you
What range of salaries can you expect in a given career?
What salary you can expect at any given age in a career.
How many jobs are actually out there in any given career?
Is there any additional information you would find useful when trying to determine a career?
Are there any careers/categories of careers that you can’t seem to find on this list?
Is any part of this information confusing or poorly explained?
Anything else you can think that might improve this.
