December 12, 2013

(CareerBuilder news release) Is finding a new job one of your New Year’s resolutions?

If so, a new study from CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. can point you toward some hot job field that are growing and pay well, too.

According to a news release issued by CareerBuilder on Thursday:

The list was based on occupations that grew 7 percent or more from 2010 to 2013, are projected to increase in 2014, and fall within a higher-wage category of $22 per hour or more.

“More high-wage jobs will be created in 2014 which will, in turn, fuel the creation of jobs at lower pay levels,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of The Talent Equation. “The challenge is many of these in-demand, skilled positions are in areas where companies are already experiencing a shortage of qualified labor. As a nation, we need to focus on reskilling workers of all ages and providing them with affordable education to catch up to labor demands in technology, healthcare and other key sectors.”
