We all knew majoring in humanities wouldn't lead to that many good jobs, so no big whoop there. But what jobs have the best salary, job security, and work-life balance? Well, according to U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of the 100 best jobs, you can get by pretty well if you're in the tech or health care industries. In fact, the top 10 jobs on the list are all in those two fields. Software developers, who might "design games" or "be systems-focused developers," come in at the top of the list.
U.S. News & World Report choose which gigs make the cut based on a mix of employability, job security, salary, and work-life balance. "All jobs aren’t created equal," the folks at U.S. News & World Report warn us. "In fact, some are simply better than the rest."
Hey, it may not be too late to switch your major to computer science. Otherwise, you might just have to get used to holding a little grudge against all those super successful tech people.
