Human capital industry website, Payscale.com has a great format for compiling national data on all manner of career tracks. It includes median salary information by job title, plus numbers for bonus, benefits and other things you’d want to know about any given career field. It also shows projected salaries for every job type over time so you can see what you might expect to earn after 5 years, 10 years and beyond in your field of choice. It even shows the differential between what you’d earn in the same career in different US cities.
But perhaps the most interesting information shown is the typical career path for any job title. They use a flow chart to demonstrate the typical jobs that a person could grow into after beginning in a given job.
