Best jobs for 2014 listed by CareerBuilder

December 13 2013

Applications and systems software developers topped a list of well-paying, in-demand jobs for 2014 released today by CareerBuilder and EMSI. “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. "The challenge is many of these in-demand, skilled positions are in areas where companies are already experiencing a shortage of qualified labor.”

The list is 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. High-wage jobs to watch out for in the new year, including jobs added in 2014, include:
