If you want to know where commercialization is trending, the simple answer is to follow the money. That’s exactly what you can do with Glassdoor’s most recent ranking of the Best Jobs in America. It’s pretty clear that technology, and specifically software, tops the rankings. The report, which can be sliced and diced by many metrics including salaries, number of openings, geographies, and reputation of the companies and their CEO’s, is well put together and easy to understand. There’s a treasure trove for anyone trying to figure out what careers to target, what technologies are being commercialized, or just doing a deep-dive on competitors.
“This report reinforces that the best jobs are highly-skilled and are staying ahead of the growing trend toward workplace automation. Nearly half the list is comprised of jobs within the fast growing technology, healthcare, and finance industries,” said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist, in their press release announcing the list. He continues, “Any organization today with a mobile app, web presence or digitized data are struggling to fill jobs like data scientists, software engineers and mobile developers.”
Conclusion on the report? The tech industry is dominating and software is clearly eating the world. The tech industry not only has the top positions right now, it also has some of the strongest company reputations and employee loyalty.
