Salaries of Anthropology graduates (after 5 years’ work)

Sample Answer:

The pie chart gives information about the employment status of Anthropology graduates from a particular university after completing their undergraduate degree course, and the table illustrates how much the anthropologists in three different types of employment got paid after five years.

In general, it is evident that while the percentage of Anthropology graduates doing full-time work after receiving their undergraduate degree was highest, the opposite was true for those choosing part-time work and postgraduate study. Furthermore, after 5 year’s work, the proportions of anthropologists working as freelance consultants and in the government sector with the lowest salary range were exactly the same, while the highest figure can be seen in that of those working in the government sector with the highest-paid.

Regarding the pie chart, the majority of Anthropology graduates had a full-time job, at 52%, while the proportions of those only working part-time and the unemployed were significantly lower, at only 15% and 12% respectively. Meanwhile, the figures for Anthropology graduates choosing full-time postgraduate study and the unknown group were identical, at 8%, whereas only 5% of graduates majoring in Anthropology chose to do part-time work and pursue postgraduate study at the same time.

Turning to the table, Anthropology graduates with a salary range between 25.000 and 49.999 dollars accounted for the smallest proportion of those working as freelance consultants and in the government sector after 5 years, at only 5%, which was half the figure for private companies. By contrast, the percentages of those working as freelance consultants, in the government sector and in private companies with the most generous salary in the table were considerably higher, at 40%, 50% and 30% respectively.
