Top 25 jobs

Choosing a career can be a breeze for some people and daunting for others. It seems that some people know exactly what they want to do and just go out and make it happen. For others, the options are endless and they have trouble making a decision. In previous posts, we’ve talked about resources that can help like career interest assessments or seeking advice from a guidance counselor or career practitioner.

There are also endless resources and articles on the web that can point you in the right direction. Check out this article on the 25 best jobs according to U.S. News & World Report. Not only does it list the top jobs, but it provides details on why each job made the cut. I think this information could be helpful to people at any career or life stage. You may want to check it out just to see if your current job made the list or look into the median salary for the profession that you’re thinking about pursuing. This article also reports on satisfaction levels, unemployment levels, and projected growth for each of the 25 jobs.

What do you think about this list? Any surprises? Is anything missing? Is your top job on the list?

    I like the comments posted at the bottom of the each job’s description. People working in the field giving their honest opinion and stating the advantages and disadvantages of their daily work.

  2. Great point, Andrea! This is exactly the type of unique and honest information that job seekers need for a realistic job preview. Some of the comments are really quite amusing, and in many cases, probably represent accurate depictions of some of the trials and tribulations associated with the job. Of course, as with anything, you have to take some of the negative comments with a grain of salt.

    I agree! This is a great article. It provides a good summary of the ins and outs of different jobs and the comments help readers to get feel for what the jobs are like in “real life.” I particularly liked how they determined the rankings by considering several different factors. It’s interesting (and maybe a bit surprising) to see that only 7 of the 25 “best jobs” have a high satisfaction score.
