Best Jobs in 2014




"The growing health care sector offers career paths that lead to generous compensation and a secure future. The last time it put out ten-year projections for industry sector growth, in 2010, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projected that the health care and social assistance industry would produce 28% of the new jobs in the U.S. over the decade. Extended longevity and an aging population, combined with expanding insurance coverage under Obamacare, are increasing the demand for all kinds of health professionals. That means at least 5.7 million new jobs by 2020 as measured by the BLS. Another compelling statistic for those considering a health care career: The BLS projects that health care wages and salaries will rise 27% through 2014."
