JA Build Your Future™ by Junior Achievement USA (Free, 4.6 MB): This nifty tool for the college bound, or anyone changing careers and perhaps needing extra education, makes it easy to determine whether or not your desired job is financially viable. Each area in the logical four step process contains a good amount of information, of course, all based on averages. When picking a job, you'll be informed of the education level requirement, salary, whether the demand is growing and how much, and even simple comparisons to related positions. Next, it's time to select education specifics, such as in or out of state schooling, whether to utilize on campus living, and degree to determine an estimated cost. Obviously, the final necessary input involves payment options. Most people require a student a student loan, which will be broken down into yearly and monthly expense figures. However, you may also add a scholarship amount, parental assistance, possible job wages, and other reductions towards the full bill. When completed, the final report includes the aforementioned expense breakdown calculations as well as a return on investment rating. Basically, ROI shows if your career choice stands to earn you a profit and about how much versus the cost. Data is from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and PricewaterhouseCoopers, plus reviewed by Junior Achievements with possibly additional sources.

The stack of standard bullets is endless, although, other ammunition and resources are not. As you progress, that is, succeed, new weapons and other rewards will be granted along with a kind rank promotion.
