If you're hoping to land a new job in the new year, you've come to the right place.

CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI) have compiled a list of the hottest, most in-demand jobs for 2016, based on supply and demand (the number of job ads companies post each month outpace the number of people they actually hire), growth, and salary data. This analysis uses EMSI's extensive labor-market database, which pulls from over 90 national and state employment resources.

"For over 100 occupations in the US, there is far more job posting activity than hiring month to month," said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and coauthor of "The Talent Equation," in a press release.

He continued: "While many of these jobs are in the technology and health care sectors, there are also plenty of opportunities in areas such as marketing, sales, and transportation. The availability of jobs across industries underscores the need for companies to evaluate where their talent deficits are and become more strategic about how they fill these needs — whether that means reskilling their current workers, offering higher salaries to attract workers, or using data analytics to target talent with the right skills."

Here are the occupations that have the largest gap between job openings and hires. All of the following typically require a college degree:
