Did you know that today, April 9 2013 is Equal Pay Day? Happy Equal Pay Day! This day represents the strides towards equal pay that have been made already, and also the pay gap that currently exists between genders. In today’s infographic, NerdWallet details the history of the gender pay gap, the professions with the largest and smallest pay gaps, and lists the cities with the lowest pay gap. A lot of valuable information, so get reading!

Large strides have been made to minimize the pay gap, but we still aren’t at even just yet. According to today’s infographic, women working full time make 77% of what men earned. That statistic carries by location and profession, but as an average we have a bit of work to do.

As women, we should begin an effort to close this gap. Be informed of the average salary of your position, don’t be afraid to negotiate, and be confident. You deserve equal pay, so go get it! [Via]

The Most-Anticipated Superhero Movies [Infographic]

Thirty years ago it would probably be hard to imagine the explosion and success that superhero movies are having today across the world. Superhero movies were still popular and fairly frequent back then, but today they have become one of the most popular and collectively highest-grossing film genres of all time. With all of the advances we’ve made (and continue to make) in entertainment technology, these fantastic stories are finally starting to be able to come to life the way they were truly, originally imagined.

Today’s infographic from Business2Community gives us a look at some of the most-anticipated big-budget superhero movies slated to release within the next few years. In May we have Robert Downey Jr. donning his famous suit and becoming Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) once again for the third installment in the Iron Man franchise, and from everything seen so far it looks to be Stark’s most challenging adventure yet. As for The Avengers, there is good news and bad news. The good news: Joss Whedon is set to take the helm again with everyone’s favorite band of mismatched superheroes with The Avengers 2, but the bad news is that we’re going to have to wait another two years for that one.

For more info on the next big superhero movies have a look at the infographic below and have a great day! [Via]

P.S. As of today I’ve been at DailyInfographic for exactly a year! Thanks for reading everyone!

Comparison Shopping Engines: Shifting ecommerce sales into overdrive [infographic]

April 7, 2013 |  by  |  eCommerce, Retail  |  1 Comment

I am no expert in the logistics behind Comparison Shopping Engines (CSE), but I am definitely an expert in using them. It’s as simple as a Google search, and voila, you have a price comparison of the item you desire from sites all over the internet. It’s just so darn convenient! Why would anyone want to take on a crowded mall when they could order all the same things, at more competitive rates, from the comfort of their home?

According to this infographic, 2012 saw a 56% overall increase in CSE traffic and helped ecommerce revenues top one trillion dollars. In addition to the 2012 CSE stats, the infographic provides pointers on keeping your business revved up when it comes to your CSEs. I’m going to be honest and say that as generous as I find this shared information to be, I understand very little of what it is actually saying. Like I said, I am more interested in online shopping than I am in knowing how I found the item I was shopping for. The great news is that there is no need to stress yourself out over your CSEs! Volusion can help you with all your shopping feed management so you have time to focus on everything else. Check them out!

Who Lies on Their Resumes? [infographic]

April 5, 2013 |  by  |  Business  |  No Comments

Serious y’all? I can’t believe almost 46% of resumes stretch the truth. I’ve been busting my ass building my resume since I first left for college, now four years in I have a polished plethora of experience across multiple fields. Now I’m thinking, why didn’t I just lie about all of it?

The fact is, you want to perform well at your job. Lying about previous expertise can put one in a pickle once they start their occupation. Making simple mistakes and being oblivious to your industry’s jargon are telltale signs of a deceptive resume. With the job market how it is though, more and more people are taking extreme measures to ensure employment. Lying about degrees, past positions and inflating previous salaries are prime examples.

One program helping to combat the false resume is LinkedIn. I have my resume up for all to see online, and my previous employers and coworkers can literally verify my experience. I have references and resume endorsements from real people that any potential employer can contact. Using linkedIn for hiring is a must and the statistics in today’s infographic only reinforce the fact that not everyone is honest. [Via]
