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.
