2009 Best Jobs List

On 12/09/2009, in Career, Formal Education, by Jordan Wilson

Still trying to find that perfect career? One that will bring great growth potential and riches?

If so, or to hopefully re-affirm the decision you have already made, check out this CNN Money.com list of the 100 best jobs in America.

Good to see a lot of finance and accounting related positions on the list.

While an interesting compilation, always remember that the business world is constantly changing.

5 to 10 years ago, there were no iPhones, Twitter, Facebook, Toyota Prius, Climate Change excitement, Homeland Security, Cyber-terrorism, Health-care reform, to list just a few examples of change.

These things affect people’s lives and create new industries to deal with them.

And so too do they influence what new jobs will be created and their impact on existing professions.

If you look at the top 10 jobs, the current skill sets and responsibilities of Systems Engineer, IT Project Manager, Network Security Analyst, and Intelligence Analyst are significantly different than they were 10 years ago.

I expect that if you reviewed a similar list from 1999, you would see a lot of jobs that no longer exist in their present form. And that some from the 2009 list were not even envisioned in 1999.

So enjoy the read, but take it with a grain of salt for long term success.
