State Site Shows Careers, Education, Pay

In June, the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office launched Salary Surfer, a website that allows students to search salaries of professionals in a given field, as well as compare earnings of individuals who have completed a particular type of degree or certificate. The site was developed, in part, to encourage students to develop clear academic goals and career plans and to provide additional information to support school counselors as they advise students on their postsecondary plans. Though the new website does not provide school-by-school information, it does provide information on which colleges offer what program.
