At least 9.8 million jobs are projected to be created by 2024, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics…

To help students with this decision, U.S. News & World Report recently released its report on the best jobs of 2016…

EXAMINING THE METHODOLOGY

U.S. News and World Report uses the following components to determine the country’s best jobs…

According to Dr. Lori Trahan, associate director of Kennesaw State University’s Career Services Center,

“Students always want to know ‘How much will I get paid in XYZ field?’ and their parents want to know

about the other categories, because they’ve lived through tough job markets so they want to know their

kids will have some stability.”

EMERGING TRENDS

Looking at the list, Dr. Trahan sees several emerging trends. Dr. Trahan tells GoodCall, “What I see as emerging

trends for the ‘best jobs’ are (1) They aren’t all in the traditional fields people think of when thinking about the

world of work; (2) We’re going to see more jobs on that list requiring technical expertise beyond high school;

(3) Many of the jobs that will be on that list in 5 years haven’t been created yet.”
