The Best Jobs in America 2019

With nearly seven million open jobs in the U.S., there is an opportunity for every job seeker to find a job that fits their life in 2019. But where should you start?

Glassdoor has announced its annual jobs report identifying the 50 Best Jobs in America for 2019. We evaluated millions of jobs by looking at three key factors equally: earning potential based on median annual base salary, job satisfaction rating and number of job openings. And it may come as no surprise that for the fourth consecutive year, data scientist takes the top spot as the best job in America. However, nearly every industry is represented in the list, which is a mix of tech and non-tech.

“There’s no question that emerging technologies designed to grow and scale business, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation are having an impact on the types of jobs employers are hiring for across the country. As a result, we’re seeing a spike in demand for highly-skilled workers in 2019,” said Glassdoor Economic Research Analyst Amanda Stansell. “With such a healthy job market kicking off 2019, we’re seeing many of these Best Jobs open for people to apply to and get hired at employers across all industries and in all areas of the country.”

Healthcare jobs are growing rapidly and make up eight of the top 50 occupations on the list, with Dental Hygienist, Physical Therapist and Radiologic Technologist being new to the list this year.
