The Best Jobs of 2015


By Jada A. Graves

Each year, U.S. News faces a tall task: Ranking jobs to highlight those that are better than most. The problem? There isn't one type of worker who wants one type of job to fit one type of lifestyle. But whether you're drawn to work in health care or IT, in a creative field or the business world, certain things ring true: The best job for you holds your interest and pays for your lifestyle. And it's an occupation for which you could get hired to do.

That reasoning fuels U.S. News' Best Jobs rankings. The occupations selected are those the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts will grow the most between 2012 and 2022. Those top 100 jobs, from the industries of business, creative, construction, health care, social services and technology, are then ranked based on projected openings, rate of growth, job prospects, unemployment rates, salary and job satisfaction.

According to that recipe, health care and technology jobs rise to the top – in fact, seven out of our top 10 occupations are from health care. Here are the 10 Best Jobs of 2015.
