The real world seems so scary to us undergrads. Once we leave this school time bubble real life sets in. And with real life comes real responsibilities, real bills and a really big need for money. And for once this money isn’t coming from our parents, grand parents or financial aid. We are stranded with our education and our ambition.

This insightful infographic peers into the very important reality of salary, and more importantly salary negotiation. Surviving in this tight economy is a necessity, and negotiating your salary before January, June and July is crucial since those are the months where most raises are given.

And while money is essential for survival, it is happiness that is really at the core of living. In a Princeton study comparing job satisfaction to income level, a positive correlation between job satisfaction and salary only exists up until the $75,000 mark. In my opinion, the moral behind this infographic is to find a job you love, negotiate for a salary of $75,000 during January, June or July and live happily ever after. [Via]

Woo! I had a great weekend painted my bike and got to go to ACL (Austin City Limits) on Sunday. Unfortunately I missed Chiddy Bang, but did get to see Fleet Foxes and Arcade Fire, both of which were good. Who was your favorite act at ACL? If you went that is. Well now it’s Monday and reality is settling in, no more being outside and having to worry about nothing but watching bands. It’s time to go to class and work, oh the joys of the workweek. Lucky for you though, today is the day we debut our first original infographic!

To make sure your week starts off nice and cheery today’s infographic How will you die? presents the most likely way you will die depending on race, gender, and age. If you are a 21 year old Hispanic like me, we are most likely to die of unintentional injury which according to today’s infographic is most likely to be a car accident. If you are 65 or older, no matter your ethnicity, you are most likely to die from heart disease, congratulations.

Thanks to our partner infographic world for helping with the creation of today’s infographic. Enjoy and share!How will you die?

NFL Fun Facts [infographic]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Football is back, and I’m loving it. Today’s infographic is dedicated to everyone else who goes crazy for football season.

So how about them Cowboys? Believe it or not, I am a Cowboys fan and always will be through the thick and the thin. Tony Romo has me in a love/hate relationship, and should probably win an award for the player most likely to disappoint.

The facts in today’s infographic definitely go outside the box. I never would have thought about the price of putting the yellow line on television…it seems a little steep to be honest. It’s also interesting to note how much football has grown…a 5’1″ player would be absolutely crushed in today’s game.

Last I checked, the odds for the Cowboys to win the Super Bowl are 100:1. So if you have a couple of dollars to spare, you should probably drop them on the Cowboys, because they are going to win the Super Bowl. [Via]

The Law School Bubble [infographic]

September 14, 2011 |  by  |  Education  |  No Comments

I have worked full-time for two years since graduation, and I will admit that sometimes I give in to victim mentality and wish it was 1995. I don’t remember everything from “Bring Your Daughter To Work” day, but I do recall my dad’s Hawaiian Luau Friday, swag embroidered with his company name, and his built in stock options. Fast-forward to today, and things look pretty bleak.

This infographic illustrates just one of the many industries feeling the pinch, the hallowed legal profession. As much as television still portrays the golden days of the profession when a law degree almost guaranteed a job, the infographic below, and several trend articles in the New York Times and other outlets beg to differ. It seems that while both law school tuition and application numbers are increasing, demand for lawyers and their average salaries are decreasing. This is not good news for anyone taking out loans (hello, majority) to get their J.D.

So where does that leave prospective lawyers? The information in the infographic below is crucial for anyone considering going to law school, but it doesn’t change the facts for the population that attend law school for one reason: their passion for law. For those people, going to law school isn’t just a way to a guaranteed job, make big money or wait out the recession. And in the end, those people, the ones with a passion for the profession, are the ones I want handling my legal issues. [Via]
