The Cities With the Jobs of the Future

Where to Find the Jobs of the Future Right Now

Given how bad the job market is, it may be difficult to believe that there are dozens of professions looking to hire more employees now and in the coming years. The hard part is finding out what these professions are and where they are located, and of course, deciding if you’re willing to move to them if necessary. To help guide you to where you can find the jobs of the future now, MainStreet sifted through data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to find the 10 occupations that are expected to expand the most by 2018 and paired this with separate BLS data on the cities with the greatest concentration of these jobs in 2010. We’ve listed the top 10 fastest-growing occupations here along with the three cities that have the highest number of these jobs in relation to their overall job market. Not only might this list offer some hints about where you can get your footing in a thriving industry, but it may just show which cities are best suited for the 21st-century economy based on how much of their labor force is already working in industries with a great outlook.
