Brookline, MA (Vocus) August 7, 2009
AchieveYourCareer.com, a trusted website for online education and career college news and information, has announced its plan to display salary icons to indicate top paying college degree programs based on the latest 2009 survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. The new feature will be based on a scale of 1 to 5 dollar signs. One dollar sign represents the lowest paying career program, while five dollar signs represent the highest paying college degree program. “The program adapts the 5 star movie rating system, which most people are familiar with, and applies it to job salaries based on their college degree program,” stated AchieveYourCareer.com President, Michael Speicher. “People want information fast, and this new salary icon system provides a quick informative look at a potential job salary for your education."
The survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which is an organization that tracks and charts the job salaries of recent college graduates, shows a clear indication that earning your online degree in engineering can be a very smart investment. Out of the top 15 paying jobs for college graduates, 13 are in the engineering field. AchieveYourCareer.com hopes the new salary icon system will help adult learners who are searching for the right degree program find a rewarding and lucrative career. “A large percentage of our searches are for degrees related to the engineering and business career field." With the increased competition of applicants vying for a limited amount of positions, our salary icon might help promote growing careers in the US for 2009 and 2010,” Speicher added.
Salary icons is scheduled to launch on August 15, 2009. For more information visit AchieveYourCareer.com.
