Infographic shows earning differences for potential professionals
A new infographic has been released that gives budding doctors, lawyers, journalists, graphic designers and even musicians a greater idea about their future earning potential. Put together by Blackburn College, the design shows information about a range of careers, including a bit about what the roles involve and what kind of starting salaries they can offer.
Perhaps more interestingly though, it also shows how national averages for each of these roles stack up against one another, as well as what kind of wages employees might progress towards further down the line. It states that the national average hourly rate across all sectors stands at £9.35, while pointing out that many jobs could see people earn double or possibly even triple this amount.
The top Blackburn College career path is becoming a doctor, which the guide explains could see successful students earning between £33k and £44k as a junior – rising to anything up to £150,000 in the longer term. It is noted that solicitors too could expect to earn as much as this at the height of their career, however, with a starting salary of between £17k and £19k. Other top flight roles listed include marketing managers, who have an average salary of between £25k and £55k, and accountants – who can start at around £23k and work their way up to £55k.
According to a spokesperson for Blackburn College, the design shows just how essential it can be for young people to get the right career information early on if they are to study for a brighter future in a career they love. “We realise how important potential career paths are to teenagers,” the spokesperson explained. “This infographic is a great way of showing the possible routes from college courses, and in some cases through university, to dream jobs.”
The infographic also lists the differences between roles in the public sector including police officers and fire-fighters, while more creative roles like graphic designers and musicians are also detailed. Other jobs that make up the rest of those highlighted include positions in journalism and retail management, with the overriding message seeming to be that while starting salaries can vary quite dramatically they can potentially lead to something much more substantial thanks to the qualifications gained.
Previously, the college launched a similar infographic that looked into further education, advising youngsters about some of the great things to do in the region, while also providing interactive careers information through a series of embedded QR codes – which could be activated using a smartphone.
