"What Career Should You Choose?"

Well, that depends...

If you're only interested in making money then you should definitely become a Anesthesiologists. At least according to the chart found here and shown in the screenshot above. 

Of course we don't choose careers based only on our earning potential. Most people don't anyway. In fact, how many of us planned to become "compensation experts". That wasn't on my radar in college. I started out helping my parents get their consulting business off the ground. My first job was just typing up letters and entering data into Lotus 123 using the state of the art IBM compatible 286 PC with the glowing green screen. Ah, fond memories...

Anyway, it's that time of year. You know, the time of year when salary surveys are released AND when kids are thinking about graduating high school and going on to college.

So in that spirit, you should check out the "What Career Should You Choose?" interactive chart and see just what people are making in their chosen profession.*
