College? No College? Here Are the Best Jobs for 2016

With or without a college degree, if your New Year’s resolutions include finding a solid-salary career that’s going places, you’ll want to check this out. Here are the top eight occupations for 2016 in two categories—those requiring a college degree and those not (though they may need a postsecondary certificate of some kind). Read more details in our analysis and check out the infographic from Emsi below. What you’ll find in the infographic:

  1. 2010-2015 growth.
  2. Current hourly wages.
  3. Top three cities for each occupation, based on where the occupations have a notable presence, pay the most, and have grown the fastest.
  4. A comparison of monthly job postings and hires, plus the gap between the two. (If job postings heavily outnumber hires, this means employers are probably searching hard for talent, and the odds are good for jobseekers.)
