What Kind of Jobs Are In High Demand Now?

Plenty of Jobs Around, but Not Many High-Paying Ones

The good news is that jobs are coming back, the bad news is the pay of those jobs are far from stellar, said CNN. According to experts, this job recovery is mainly driven by temp and low-wage jobs, which is concerning. "Growth has been concentrated in mid-wage and lower-wage industries. By contrast, higher-wage industries showed weak growth and even net losses," said Annette Bernhardt, a co-director for the National Employment Law Project.

However, not all high-wage jobs have been affected — positions for registered nurses, considered to be very high-paying jobs, are expected to have the most increase in the next decade. It's not certain whether this job trend will continue, and it'll be dependent on many factors, including the global economic recovery. For job hunters who are anxiously searching, check out the fields that have had the most job growth.
