Data scientist is the best job in America for the 4th consecutive year: Glassdoor.
After evaluating millions of jobs by looking at three key factors: earning potential based on median annual base salary, job satisfaction rating, and number of job openings, Glassdoor announced its annual jobs report identifying the 50 Best Jobs in America for 2019.
While data scientist took the top spot as the best job in America for the fourth consecutive year, nearly every industry is represented in the Glassdoor list, making a mix of tech and non-tech.
Healthcare jobs peaked rapidly and made up 8 of the top 50 occupations on the list.
Skills in science, technology, engineering and math are still important to help you land some of the best jobs in America.
The economy is in good shape for job-seekers
According to government data, there are currently nearly 7 million job openings on the market, so options are high for young workers.
Emerging technologies have been designed to grow and scale business, so the variables are many. Innovations such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation are having an impact on the types of jobs and ways employers are hiring across the country.
Amanda Stansell, Glassdoor economic research analyst, said that the index proved to have a notable spike in demand for highly-skilled workers.
Tech jobs dominated the ranking, with 19 jobs on this year’s list.
Most in-demand and highest-paying
Software engineer was the most in-demand job on the list, with 49,007 job openings.
The highest-paying job on the list is software engineering manager, with a median base salary of $153,000.
The challenges for young America
Although many tech jobs are expanding for students, tuition fees in the U.S. private and public schools rank amongst the highest in the world.
