Want one of the best jobs in America?
Jobs that are fulfilling and well-compensated?
The results are in and Chief Business Correspondent Christine Romans breaks it down. The top three sectors where there's job growth, job satisfaction, and pay are health care, tech, and oil and gas.
The number one job in the study is bio-medical engineering, raking in a median pay of $87,000. Clinical nurse specialists follow, with a median pay of $86,500. “Health care rocks in good times and in bad times,” Romans says.
The tech industry dominates next. Software architects rank third in the study, with a median pay of $121,000.
But the oil and gas industry in the United States is one to watch.
"We are on track to be the world's biggest oil producer, passing Saudi Arabia in the next 10 to 15 years.” Petroleum geologists are number six in the study, with a median pay of $183,000.
