We live in an aging, technology-hungry society -- and the jobs of the future prove it.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, one-in-four new jobs will be in the health care and social assistance or the private educational service sectors, and computer occupations account for five of the 20 fastest growing occupations.
These 25 careers are expected to be among the hottest jobs in the fastest-growing industries in the United States through 2012. Some of them need applicants with a college degree. Some need people willing to learn on the job. All promise excellent job growth.
