Top Future Jobs Remain in Health Care, Business, Tech

The top future jobs remain in health care, business, and technology, this according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Based on criteria established in their Occupational Outlook for 2008-09, the top future jobs (jobs paying above average wages with above average growth rate in terms of number of positions) are registered nurses, computer software application engineers, and management analysts/accountants and executive secretaries.  Each of these fields requires at least some post secondary education – which does not bode well for those with only a high school diploma. 

Of those high growth jobs paying above average wages, only a select few jobs in the construction field required no post-secondary education.  Other hot future jobs – jobs with the highest growth rate (in percent terms) had some unique occupations, such as theatrical make-up artist.  These jobs don’t necessarily rank high in terms of overall positions created they are the fastest growing with good wages.
