Infographics: What Career Should I Choose & Jobs Charted by State/Salary
Here are two informative and interactive career-related graphs. First, “What Career Should I Choose,” made by Rasmussen College, uses data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to show the salaries and workforce of different careers along with their projected growth. This can help you find the jobs that are more likely to be hiring in the future, along with an idea of their salary. Click the picture below to go to the website.
The second chart allows you to look at salary data by state to get a more accurate idea of what a particular job pays in your area. There is a slider at the top that allows you to adjust the median income so that only jobs above a certain salary are highlighted. Both of these charts, in combination or separate, provide some pretty useful info. You can find the second chart, made by FlowingData, here.
