What Fields Do College Graduates Work In?
How does your choice of a college major impact your final career? Williams College created this interactive chart that shows how their students’ majors connect with career paths. The U.S. Census office provides a similar chart that focuses on STEM majors.
Grad School Debt
Of course, to get a degree, most students have to pay for it. Priceonomics wrote about the different debt-to-income ratios of popular graduate degrees.
Love on the Job
Your major affects your career, and your career affects your income. Does your job affect your love life? This fun, interactive chart from Flowing Data allows you to explore which occupations are likely to marry each other. The unique format of this chart could be adapted for exploring other types of relationships.
