Onlinedegrees.org is a helpful website for students of all types - it provides you information on getting a degree online, but also has summaries and statistics on different career fields. I think it's the perfect short amount of data to help a confused high school student pick out a few careers to start researching.
Their online salary calculator has a few interesting tidbits I wanted to share:
- Engineering managers, petroleum engineers, and aerospace engineers have among the highest median salaries - within reach of CEOs
- Part of the gender wage gap seems to come down to major choice
- Veterinarians are surprisingly low-paid
Note: All their wage data is for the U.S.
