U.S. News & World Report ranked the Best Jobs for 2021 based upon data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to identify jobs with the greatest hiring demand. Jobs were scored based upon such measures as 10-year growth volume, 10-year growth percentage, median salary, employment rate, future job prospects, stress level and work-life balance.
At a time when health care is more critical than ever, jobs from the sector dominate the list, with 42 of the 100 Best Jobs in health care or health care support roles.
"One thing the global pandemic has reinforced is the need and value of health care professionals," said Antonio Barbera, consumer advice editor at U.S. News. "This year's rankings affirm that it is a good career sector for many, with typically high median salaries and low unemployment rates."
