Newsweek (Beast) shows how careers of education and work life can be represented by the metaphor of a tree and its branches [newsweek.com] (go left, right behind the advertisements). The online applet also allows readers to connect with others who have similar paths, for instance by sharing or embedding the tree into LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter.
Every career change or addition causes one's tree to grow a new branch so the bigger the career, the bigger the tree. All the career data can be retrieved via business-oriented social networking site LinkedIn, or provided by filling in quite some text form boxes. Alternatively, one can also explore some "career trees" from various famous people.
