We are taking this publicly available data and making it more digestible.
Emeryville, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2009
CollegeDegreeReport.com, a career training resource that aggregates salary and employment data published by the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics, launched last week.
The site was developed to provide college students and those considering new careers access to information they need to make responsible and economical career decisions. The website, http://www.collegedegreereport.com, is organized by occupation as well as by state and city. Those investigating new careers can access employment and salary data for 250 professional careers organized by state and metro-area, including number employed, annual average salary and average hourly wage. Additionally, visitors will find descriptions of the job, employment trends, and college degree and professional training requirements.
"The US Bureau of Labor and Statistics does a wonderful job of compiling employment and salary data that is highly valuable to anyone entering the workforce or contemplating a change of career or location. They're just not as good at publishing this information in a format for people to use", said Joan Eagle, General Manger of CollegeDegreeReport.com. "We are taking this publicly available data and making it more digestible."
With this site, for example, those considering a career in fashion design would learn that the field is highly competitive and demand for jobs is expected to grow modestly for the next year seven years. More importantly, the data shows that the current median salary for fashion designers is $62,610, but salaries differ greatly depending upon the level of college education achieved, with those with master degrees earning 23.9% more than those with bachelor degrees. Furthermore, those considering a career in fashion design should be aware that 66% of the jobs in the industry are in New York or California. Those living outside these two states should find out what employment opportunities exist in their area or be prepared to move before investing in a fashion design degree. Additional information on fashion design employment trends can be found at http://www.collegedegreereport.com/fashion-designer-careers-employment-salary-trends-aspiring-fashion-designers .
A team of developers and researchers will continue to make regular updates to this site in order to provide users with the latest in salary information and employment trends.
