This list arranges all 300 jobs that we found in order of their overall scores for pay, growth, and number of openings. The job with the
best overall score was Registered Nurses. Other jobs follow in order of their total scores for pay, growth, and openings.
A wide variety of jobs are on the list. Among the top 20 are jobs in health care, sales, education, and law enforcement. The top 100 also include several management and supervisory jobs, proving that these kinds of jobs do exist for people without a college degree.
As you look over the list, remember that jobs near the top of the list are not necessarily “good” jobs nor are jobs towards the end of the list necessarily “bad” ones for you to consider. Their position in the list is simply a result of their total scores based on pay, growth, and number of openings.
This means, for example, that some jobs with low pay and modest growth but a high number of openings appear higher on the list, while some jobs with higher pay and modest growth but a low number of openings appear towards the end of the list. A “right” job for you could be anywhere on this list.[table “2” not found /]
