100 Best Jobs in America

We recently completed our annual project with CNN/Money Magazine that ranks the 100 Best Jobs in America. These jobs were determined by numerous factors, including pay, job growth, estimated employment levels, and various quality-of-life factors, such as job security.

The top jobs are a mix: some allow a lot of schedule flexibility (Software Architect), some require more training and education than that provided by a bachelor’s degree (Physician Assistant), and some make the world a better place (Environmental Engineer).

Top 100
Money and PayScale.com rate the top 100 careers with great pay and growth prospects.
