Salary.com and Money magazine just released a list of the top fifty jobs.
Here’s how they did the rankings:
Things that are bad are less than $50,000 average salary, dangerous, and small field with little room for advancement.
Things that are good are a growing field, low stress, flexibility in hours and working environment, creativity, and easy advancement.
Here are the top ten:
1. Software engineer
2. College professor
3. Financial advisor
4. Human resource advisor
5. Physician assistant
6. Market research analyst
7. Computer/IT analyst
8. Real estate appraiser
I dove for this list as soon as I saw it, but the rankings are not as useful as you might imagine. However it made me happy to see that psychologist is up there at the top — it’s hard enough to go to a therapist, so I at least want to know that while I’m talking she is enjoying herself.
