Well, you’re in luck!

As the second largest job site, Glassdoor not only has millions of job listings, but we’ve identified the 50 Best Jobs in America for 2018. For the third consecutive year in a row, Data Scientist takes the top spot, based on the job’s overall Glassdoor Job Score. In addition, we’ve highlighted some notable newcomers to the list including Speech Language Pathologist, Business Analyst and HR Generalist.

“Half of the jobs on this year’s list are those within the fast-growing technology and healthcare industries, reinforcing that highly skilled jobs are in-demand, well compensated and those in which employees are satisfied,” said Glassdoor Chief Economist Dr. Andrew Chamberlain. “Workers with certain technical and soft skills, such as creativity, flexibility and good judgment, are at an advantage across industries, from healthcare to finance to HR, to leverage advances in artificial intelligence and automation. That’s because AI is increasingly complementing these jobs, while not replacing the people needed to do them.”
