The Best (And Worst) Jobs Out There

These days most people are just happy to have a decent job, but we all know there are some jobs that seem more desirable to people than others. Well, CareerCast just came out with their 2018 Jobs Rated report revealing best and worst gigs out there, and you may be surprised by what made it on to the list.

Topping the list of the Best Jobs for 2018 is Genetic Counselor, with a salary of over $77,000 and a 29% growth outlook to 2026. Overall, STEM and tech-related gigs land several spots in the Top Ten, including Mathematician (2), Data Scientist (7). Information Security Analyst (8), Operations Research Analyst (9) and Actuary (10).
