I think this is something you should be well versed in before you go looking for a job or career. Know your worth! That is half the battle in the quest for closing wage gap. You may be more than happy to get the job but who knows if you’re being undercut? You should! Research what someone else in your particular job field makes and you can know where you stand.
I think this post was super interesting because of the calculator aspect. The calculator took into consideration the location of jobs, which is one of the main reasons people come to Hofstra. Knowing the average salary for jobs within the city can help potential employees gauge what jobs are suitable based on the salaries. This always also people to have a prior understanding of their worth and reasonable payment so they don’t go into the interview process blindly.
This post is extremely relevant to anyone trying to get a job, or who already has a job in these fields. I feel that it is super important to know the average pay and what other people are currently getting before agreeing to take a job with a different salary. Many people are unaware of the average salary within a certain city, because it varies throughout type and location. It’s important to be prepared and knowledgeable about the job you’re going to go into.
I believe its extremely important to know the average salary in the field you are pursuing. Its interesting to see how the average salary for the same job differs between locations. Which is important when deciding where to work/live. If the average salary is much lower than the average cost of living then it wouldn’t make sense to work in that location.
I believe that this post gives a much bigger insight on what to expect in terms of careers. Some people think that the same job is the same salary throughout the world, but that is definitely not the case. This will definitely enlighten those that are curious about what they want to do for the future.
The potential salary in an industry plays a significant role in college student’s deciding their major and the career they wish to pursue. I’m going to be a senior next semester, and I wish I didn’t pay as much attention to the salary potential rather than what truly interests me when choosing my major as a freshman. If you’re good at what you do, you can make money in any industry, but you must love what you do. In the words of Steve Jobs, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
Nowadays, more and more parents and college students pay big attention to the salary among different major, and base on the data analysis to choose what major they would be in college or graduate school. In my opinion, salary does not equal to the happiness and willing to work. Most of people choose the major and job they don’t really like but can have a good salary. And those people may be easier to feel unhappy in life.
I really liked this post. It was interesting to see how much people make in the Marketing and Advertising field. I work part time with a company at home in Connecticut and run their social media accounts. So it was interesting to see how much a Social Media Manger makes and realize I should technically be making more, but than again I’m not a professional. It was also cool to use the salary calculator that specifies to your desires field and desired state.
